In a victory for business owners who lobbied against parking meters downtown, the Charlottesville City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to suspend a pilot program that had been shelved during the recent holiday season.
Councilor Wes Bellamy introduced a resolution at the end of the council meeting to suspend the program for a year. The pilot had restarted Tuesday after being suspended in November following a 72-day run.
The city announced Wednesday that the program covering 105 parking spaces has met its end. Two-hour time restrictions on certain parking spaces around the downtown area will still apply.
