If you park within a three block area of downtown bounded by Madison St., Post St., Sprague Ave., and First Ave., you may be confused by some new signs that popped up recently.

That area has recently been designated an ‘Entertainment Parkind District’ to provide entertainment venues with specialized parking rules designed to accommodate large groups and tour buses.

Newly placed disabled signs have been attached to the meters within the district to indicate that vehicles with a disabled placard may park at the meters within the district for up to four hours. Many people, however, have interpreted them to mean that the spaces are limited to disabled parking, when they are meant to help encourage turnover in the spaces for those attending events at the entertainment venues located within the district.
