CLEVELAND– The muni lot has built quite the reputation over the years. It’s the place everyone wants to go for tailgating, but finding a spot there isn’t always easy.

That’s going to change though thanks to some new rules. Fans will now be able to park the night before the game.

"Especially if like the weather is bad or something like that, you just have it all fully taken care of and it's just planned out and ready to go. I think that's awesome,” said fan, Maggie Orris.

There are a few details that still need to be figured out, like when exactly fans can start parking and whether they’ll be allow to camp.

The price will vary depending on the vehicle. If you have a car or truck, it would cost $25. If you have an RV, bus or trailer, it would be $75.

"I mean people are going to come downtown and party and drink and do whatever, so I think it's a good idea for the city to capitalize on that,” said Joe Zagorski.

Right now, it’s $20 to nab a spot in the Muni Lot on game day, and the gates open at 7 a.m.

City Council made some other changes this week too. Drivers parking at city meters, garages or lots will soon have to pay even more.

Those rates will vary based on location. For example, a meter downtown charging 75 cents will be raised to a dollar.

The adjustments are expected to go into effect mid-June.
