A plan to install 607 parking meters along major streets in the city's business area was tentatively approved by the Culver City Council on Monday pending public hearings on the proposal.
The meters, planned for commercial and retail areas of Washington, Sepulveda, Culver, Venice, National and Robertson boulevards and Washington Place, are intended to raise money for the city and increase available parking for local businesses by making it easier to enforce one- and two-hour limits, according to a staff report.
If the meters are installed, the city can expect to earn about $220,000 from the meters and violations fines, according to the report.
The council voted 4 to 1 to approve the plan. Councilman Jim Boulgarides, who favored an alternative plan that would install almost 1,400 meters, voted against the measure.
Public hearings on the parking meter plan have not yet been scheduled.
