Parking Management ensures the most efficient use of on-street and off-street parking assets within the downtown area, thereby serving the highest number of residents and visitors with the most convenient parking spaces available. On-street management of spaces is conducted primarily through the use of time limits and parking meters to encourage vehicle turnover. Off-street parking garages and lots are maintained to support the downtown by giving commuters and longer-term visitors a safe, clean place to park for a reasonable fee.
