You may soon have to pay to park in downtown Bloomington. A special city committee looking to revitalize the city's downtown is looking at bringing back parking meters. Bloomington got rid of paid parking meters in the 1980s, now Alderman Jamie Mathy wants to bring them back. Mathy's plan is to make the city's parking garages free, but charge for on street parking. He said last week that he wants to discourage the people who live and work in downtown from taking up all of the parking meters.
