View Comments ()



    To address parking issues in Hillcrest and Mission Hills, 35 new parking spaces were unveiled Thursday on the corner of Washington and Front streets.

    The lot of new spaces is at the site of the future Hillcrest-Mission Hills Library. San Diego City Council President Todd Gloria worked with city staffers and community members to allocate the site for the new parking spaces until construction on the new library begins, likely in spring 2016.

    The parking spaces were unveiled in a ribbon-cutting on Thursday morning.

    The lot will be open 24 hours a day. Fees will be 50 cents per hour, with a maximum parking time of 12 hours.
