A proposal to generate more parking meter revenue from city parks, particularly Kapiolani Park, is being shelved by the City Council.

Council members said vocal public opposition prompted the move to recommit Bill 30 when the  Council meets Friday.

"Residents and park visitors have vocally opposed Bill 30 which increases parking charges by 100 percent at Kapiolani Park and establishes fees at all other city parks," Councilman Stanley Chang said Tuesday. "Their concerns have been heard loud and clear at the Council, and I am very confident that my colleagues will agree that moving forward with Bill 30 would be irresponsible in its current form."
