Coronavirus (COVID-19) Parking Operation Updates

The Downtown Parking Program operates in partnership with the Downtown Community to increase the economic viability of the Downtown Business District while sustaining and enhancing its historical and livable qualities.

City staff maintains nine parking lots and five parking structures with a total of over 3,000 parking stalls, serving over five million vehicles annually.  In addition, we offer a residential parking permit program in areas with limited parking availability.
