Free parking in Aurora business district

A big parking change is in store for west suburban Aurora: no more parking meters.

According to ABC7 news partners at the Daily Herald, the Aurora City Council approved a plan Tuesday night to make parking free in the central business district.

Later this year, Aurora will implement a color-coded system that allows free parking for 90 minutes or two, three, six or 10 hours.

However, fines for a parking ticket will increase, and so will monthly parking permit rates, to offset the loss of money that used to be generated by parking meters.
