Customers may park free in any zone Downtown except lease lots. Look for signs on the street and in lots to determine time zones. Parking times zones are: All Day Customer, 4-Hour Customer, 3-Hour Customer, 30-Minute and 10-Minute. Not every space is marked, so use common sense to determine how spaces are zoned.
These are for employee on-street parking in designated areas only and in the Bank Lot. Employees include paid staff, unpaid staff/volunteers and booth vendors. Available on a first-come-first-served basis and cost $25 per month.* No particular space can be reserved for permit holders.
These have the same guidelines as employee permits but are available for just $5 a month with proof of residency in a legal Downtown residential dwelling.*
