Coronavirus (COVID-19) Parking Operation Updates

The Downtown Parking public counter will be closed through January 2022 as a precautionary COVID measure. Most services may be completed online, or over the phone. Please visit the links to the right, under “Important Links” for further information.

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.
