Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce officials say occasional visitors to downtown are often confused about parking rules.

The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce has extended its parking meter survey through the end of this week.

The online survey was originally scheduled to close Friday, but the chamber extended it because of spring break.

Bloomington chamber CEO Jeb Conrad says more than 4,000 people have taken the survey and the feedback has been mixed.

“We have some that have had minimal effect of changes between the meters and the garages and some that are concerned about things like the hours of operation,” he says.

Occasional visitors to downtown have also expressed concerns about not knowing all the rules and regulations. Conrad says that signals a need for an additional public awareness campaigns.

The chamber plans to work with the IU Kelley School of Business to analyze the full results beginning next week. It will then recommend any parking regulation changes to city officials.
