Flint’s Rich History [VIDEO]

With all of the negativity surrounding Flint these days, we tend to forget what a great city this used to be.  With the high crime rate and the situation with Flint's state-appointed emergency financial manager, it's easy to lose sight of where we've been.

I stumbled across a great video of Downtown Flint.  It was filmed from 1969 to 1970.  Take a stroll down memory lane after the jump!

Are You Ready to Pay to Park in Flint?

Let's face it, the city of Flint needs to raise some money. If you want to park your vehicle on or close to Saginaw Street, it'll cost you a dollar an hour. The new parking meters will be a little different that the ones we've seen before. The kiosks will be solar powered and will take coins and credit cards. It is expected that all the parking kiosks will be operational in about 30 days.

Check out this amazing video from 1969 that shows Flint as a thriving community after the jump.

Free Parking In Flint – For Now

Flint had a plan to have new parking meters up and collecting by the time we hit "Back to the Bricks" week, but the plan is now on hold. The problem? The city's meter ordinance prohibits the Downtown Development Authority from installing them. Originally the Flint DDA had hoped to have about 200 parking meters in place this summer, but the ordinance that allows them to install the meters and collect the money expired before they could be ordered and installed.
