The City’s downtown parking program implemented exciting changes effective Aug. 3, 2020.
The most notable rate change: 90 Minutes of FREE Parking to all downtown visitors parking in the following garages:
The 90-minute period of free parking replaces the previous validation program. The new program is designed to provide the following benefits:
In the garages, the weekday (6 a.m. to 6 p.m.) rates after the first 90 FREE minutes will be $1 per 15 minutes up to a maximum rate of $25.
Weekdays from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. and on Saturday and Sunday, after the first 90 minutes, the rate will be $1 per $15 minutes up to a maximum rate of $10.
Additionally, the City has adopted a new Discounted Downtown Employee Parking Permit program providing a 50% discount to those employees working in the downtown and earning $20 or less per hour (employment and wage verified during application).
The City will also resumed paid parking at all on-street meters within the downtown core at the current $2-per-hour rates.
