Starting Monday, May 18, 2020, the City will resume charging hourly rates for parking in City parking decks, as well as metered parking.

Since March, the City has waived hourly fees for parking in its parking decks due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of most downtown businesses. In response to the reopening of businesses, the City will return to normal parking operations.

Normal rates for parking decks will return at 7 a.m. Monday. Any vehicles that have been parked overnight in parking decks should be removed immediately to avoid accruing parking fees. 

The City will maintain the on-street parking spaces designated for picking up to-go orders or items from various restaurants or businesses through the summer.

We encourage the community to download and use the Passport App as a fast, touch-less, and cash-free way to pay for parking at all on-street metered spaces and in the Chauncey Swan and Harrison Street parking facilities.

For the gated parking decks, we encourage the public to use credit cards and pay using the automated equipment to reduce person-to-person transactions. Parking facilities and equipment continue to be disinfected daily.
