SARASOTA, FL (WWSB) - The City of Sarasota is now showcasing parking meters on St. Armands Circle. City officials walked around asking the public to share their thoughts and preferences of various meters. The City's Parking Division Manager Mark Lyons says there's a reason parking meters will now be in play.
"We weren't looking to create revenue streams and put meters in play, but what we need to do is identify a way to increase parking capacity. We looked at the entire area and realized that a parking garage was needed."
