In order to increase “turnover” for high-demand on street parking spaces, which enables shorter-term visitors to find easy access to parking when they shop, dine, or relax in the downtown, meter rates for the on-street parking have been adjusted slightly higher than off-street parking in the garages and lots. Monthly permits for garages and lots have been adjusted to reflect the new hourly rates. The increased fees will support new pay stations and meters, expanded Pay by Phone options, and other Downtown improvements. For more information about Downtown parking, please visit
