CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A new parking plan calls for raising prices at parking meters in several neighborhoods to combat the city's multi-million dollar deficit. 

Parking rates for the more than 800 metered spaces in neighborhoods near the University of Cincinnati like Clifton, University Heights and Corryville would double under City Manager Harry Black's plan, which proposes the increased tax rates to help with the city's budget deficit.

Parking rates Downtown and Over-the-Rhine are also expected to be affected by the increased rates of parking meters.

In UC-area neighborhoods, the increase would double from 50 cents per hour to $1 per hour. 

The city plan for next year calls for meter rates to double to $1 an hour in Clifton, Corryville and University Heights.

The increase for Downtown and OTR would by between 25 cents and 75 cents per hour. 

Of the 2300 meters in downtown and OTR, rates at nearly 2000 of the meters would increase by between 25 cents and 75 cents per hour.

Parking meters at most of the 2,500 spaces in those two neighborhoods costs between $1.50 and $2.50 per hour.

In other city neighborhoods, you can expect to see an increase of 25 cents per hour.

This increase would affect nearly 1,400 other spaces in the city's other neighborhoods would rise from 50 cents to 75 cents.

Black's budget proposes collecting $640,000 more in parking meter revenue next year. The plan was unveiled during Council's Neighborhood Committee meeting Tuesday.

The plan hopes to help with the city's $26 million deficit. 

During Tuesday's meeting, Black also revealed that the city has among the most expensive parking meter fees among its Midwest peer cities.
