Flagstaff Parking Meter Boycott Gains Traction

Flagstaff’s new parking meters, scheduled to activate in the downtown area on August 1st, are facing renewed opposition from locals who are calling for a boycott of the kiosks. Boycott literature appearing on cars parked around town this week expresses concerns about employees, residents and small businesses who will be unjustly impacted by the new pay to park system.

Comments on the Park Flag facebook page are calling this new system “double taxation” since Flagstaff residents already pay for local roads through several City taxes, including a special sales tax approved by voters a few years ago.
