The  “$3 for 3 to 3” evening parking pilot was implemented  November 2019  to provide affordable evening/nighttime parking in any of the downtown city parking garages (listed below). Any vehicle that  enters after 3 p.m., and leaves before 3 a.m. will be charged a flat rate of $3 for their entire stay. No special tickets or codes are required. Anyone who leaves the garage after 3 a.m. will be charged the normal hourly rate ($1.25/hour for the first 4 hours, $2.50/hour after the first 4 hours*).  The pilot runs through Dec. 31, 2020 . Parking in the city parking garages remains free Saturdays, Sundays and city-recognized holidays.

Public Parking Garage Information

Our parking structures are located conveniently throughout the downtown area, never more than a few blocks from all the action. Just grab a ticket when you enter and keep it in a safe place where it won't get lost. If you lose your ticket, there is a $50 FEE - so do keep track of it! Your total owed for parking will be calculated on exit. 

And remember, parking is free on weekends and city holidays! (But you still need to take a ticket and insert it into the machine when you exit the garage.)
