Q. I am handicapped – where is there available handicapped parking?
A. Handicapped parking is available in City lots and garages at the posted rates. Vehicles displaying a valid handicapped placard are invited to park at on-street metered parking for free. While on-street parking is free, vehicles displaying a handicapped placard are still expected to honor the posted time restrictions, which vary per meter.
