Free-parking weekends in Cleveland Heights begin Thanksgiving weekend

Starting Nov. 29, parking at meters in all Cleveland Heights parking lots, garages and on the street will be free on the weekends—Friday, Saturday and Sunday—from Thanksgiving weekend to the last weekend in December. 

"Business owners and residents have been very supportive of this idea. It reinforces the city's commitment to our commercial districts and also has been an incentive to bringing more people to our excellent restaurants and one-of-a-kind stores throughout the city," said Mayor Dennis Wilcox.

The city announced on Oct. 21 that it would offer free parking at meters on Nov. 29, for Small Business Saturday. The city later expanded the free-parking days to the entire post-Thanksgiving weekend, and all weekends in the month of December.

Signs will be posted on the city's parking garages and throughout the city to remind visitors and residents they may park at no charge on those weekends.
