Parking in Ionia
The City of Ionia has established parking regulations in both the Downtown District and in the Residential District.

Downtown District
Available parking in the Downtown District includes both street-side parking and several parking lots. Most street-side parking downtown is designated as two hour parking. However, there are a couple of exceptions. Downtown parking lots are designated as either two hour parking or 10 hour parking.

Each parking lot and each street-side parking area in the Downtown District contain street signs that list the parking hours in their respected area. Parking may be enforced in the Downtown District between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. See the attached Downtown District parking map for parking hours in specific areas.

Residential District
Most areas in the Residential District allow for parking on at least one side of the street. Those areas where parking is prohibited are posted with street signs indicating so.

Odd / Even Parking
The Public Safety Department may also enforce an odd / even parking ordinance which pertains to vehicles parked in the street over night. The purpose of the ordinance, which is in effect from November 1 through April each year, is to allow for proper snow removal on both sides of the street during winter months.

This particular ordinance states that city residents and visitors shall not park their vehicles along the side of any street with odd building numbers on an even-numbered date of the month, or the side of any street with even building numbers on an odd-numbered date of the month. The odd / even parking ordinance, which is only enforced between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m., does not apply to those areas where there is parking on only one side of the street.
