Musikfest Parking Fines

On Tuesday night, City Council unanimously approved raising parking fines on both the north and south sides of town during Musikfest 2014 – beginning at noon Aug. 1 and continuing until 11:59 p.m. Aug. 10.

Fines will be $30 -- twice as much as usual -- if paid within 14 days, then $45 until a citation is issued and $65 after a citation is issued.

Someone who still fails to pay will face additional costs and even the possibility of up to 10 days in jail.

Those who illegally park at spaces reserved for handicapped drivers face much steeper fines, beginning at $100 and climbing as high as $250 if not promptly paid.

Musikfest designated special event parking districts are both north and south of the Lehigh River.

The North Side Special Events Parking Area extends north from the river along Eighth Avenue to Eaton Avenue, east on Eaton to Elizabeth Avenue, east on Elizabeth to Linden Street and south on Linden back to the river.

The South Side area extends south from the river along Wyandotte Street to Third Street, east on Third to Brodhead Avenue, south on Brodhead to West Packer Avenue, east on Packer to Hillside Avenue, south on Hillside to Thomas Street, east from Thomas along Sixth Street through St. Michael’s Cemetery and continuing along Sixth to Lynn Avenue, north on Lynn to Fourth Street, east on Fourth to Emery Street and north along Emery to the river.
