The Lansing City Council voted unanimously to set the groundwork for a permit system that creates an exception to Lansing's ban on overnight street parking.

According to the Lansing State Journal,  the exception would apply for people who live in designated high density areas.

The new parking system could be implemented as soon as 2019.  It has not yet been determined exactly how much a parking permit will cost.

City Council has yet to vote to draw the boundaries for zones where overnight street parking will be allowed.
