Wow! That's just a big wow!
Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the Lord will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared. (Proverbs 3:25-26)

We talked to a guy who was installing signs on Ruxton today. He said that all the spots will require payment as of Monday, but that some near the upper end already do. Some of the mid-Ruxton spots will be reserved for residents except for 8-4 Monday-Friday, but all of the spots above Iron Spring appear to be available full-time.

Also, the shuttle from Tajine Alimi (Old Man's Trail) starts Sunday. There's lots of free parking behind the restaurant and around Memorial Park.

They're free for now, but sometime soon Manitou will start charging for them (they're talking tomorrow, but who knows if they're ready yet). $1/hr for the first three hours, $2/hour for the next two, $3/hr after with a $28/day max. Ouch. The Barr Trail lot at $5/day is starting to look like a good deal.

Once they start charging, the parking will probably never fill up again on a normal day. The Barr Trail lot is seldom full any more.

Starting May 19th, there will be free parking behind Tajine Alimi, east of downtown by Memorial Park, with a free shuttle.
