In 2009, Mercer Island City Council passed an ordinance to re-align parking in the major Town Center areas to better meet the needs of our residents who want to park and shop at Town Center businesses.The north side of SE 28th St., between 78th Ave. SE and 80th Ave. SE was striped to create new head-in parking spaces in front of several businesses.
Many parking spaces in the core of the Town Center were changed from “Permit Only” parking to “Two Hour Limit”, creating a higher turn-over in parking spaces and giving patrons of local businesses more parking availability. Residents, customers and commuters should pay attention to signage when they park on the street in these areas.
