SALEM, Ore. - The Salem City Council voted Monday to ban parking meters downtown and eliminate time limits.
The council approved an initiative brought by the group Stop Parking Meters in Downtown Salem, which gathered 6,000 signatures from city residents and 3,000 from non-residents.
The Statesman Journal reports employees of downtown businesses still are prohibited from parking on the street, but that will mostly be left up to businesses to enforce.
