Downtown Parking  

The Downtown is supported by 11 public parking facilities - 2 parking structures and 9 surface parking lots with approximately 1,500 off-street parking spaces.  These off-street parking spaces have timed parking structures from Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm (excluding holidays).  To help manage daytime parking demands between long-term parkers and short-term parkers, the City administers a Downtown Parking Permit Program for property owners, businesses and residents within the Parking District.
