People complain about the need for more affordable parking in downtown Detroit all the time, but now a neighboring suburban community is also facing scrutiny due to changes in its parking system.
The city of Ferndale, Mich. recently transitioned from parking meters to a new system of parking kiosks and raised rates up to $1 an hour during certain times and at some locations. Hours for parking enforcement have also been extended to 11 p.m. Ferndale city manager April Lynch, told the Ferndale Patch the new rates would encourage quicker turnaround for on-street parking spaces and help fund additional updates to the parking system.
