Heading Downtown on a Saturday this summer? Starting today, the City is covering the parking meters in the Downtown parking garage for the third year in a row, so take advantage of the opportunity to visit your favorite restaurant or try one of our newest additions.

Two years ago, the Council authorized a pilot project to allow free parking in the City garage on Saturdays during the summer to attract customers downtown on summer weekends. This program was generally considered a success. Lost revenue for a typical summer was estimated to be $6,000.00.

Upon Council approval, City staff implemented a similar program for the summer of 2013. With lessons learned from last two summers, staff anticipates an even more successful, smoothly run program this summer.

Free summer parking begins today, and continues through Saturday, August 23rd.

Note that parking is always free in the garage on Sundays.
