By the end of January the cost to park at 133 parking meters in Ridley Park will increase. The rate increase approved by Borough Council at January's meeting will double the current parking rate on a broad majority of the Borough's meters around Taylor Hospital. Meters in the CBD (Central Business District) and meters directly in front of the Gas Light are not effected in this round of changes.

Parking meter inconsistencies around Taylor Hospital had been discussed for several months at the Borough's monthly workshop meeting.  Tuesday's action followed a reassessment of the Borough's meters by Council Member Jim Glen and RPPD Police Chief Tom Byrne.  Changes are expected to go into effect as soon as the meter manufacturer's repair contractor is completed with meter upgrades in Montgomery County next week. Council approved increases for the following meters.

 

Ridley Park Train Station (40 meters)
East Hinckley, (except for the first 4 meters on Sellers) and East Ridley

I live on W. Ridley Ave., a block away from the Crum Lynne train station. I hope the increase in meter rates doesn't result in people trying to park in front of houses along W. Ridley to get free parking. I know in some places there are signs that say 2 hour parking limit but the whole street needs to have those signs.
