Parking Permit Sales to be Staggered Starting Sept. 30

Monthly parking permits will be available to purchase on a first-come, first-serve basis starting on Sept. 30.

The permits can be purchased online or in-person starting at 8 a.m.

The city is offering four types of parking permits. They do not guarantee a spot in a particular area, but they allow the permit holder to avoid having to put money in meters or future kiosks.

There will be a total of 240 permits sold.

The permits available – standard and premium – come with two options of hours – either 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday or Monday-Saturday 10 a.m. to midnight.

“To ease the rush of everybody coming the same day, the same time, same website, we’re going to space these over four different days,” said Parking Director Matt Davis during the meeting.

Premium permit holders will be able to park in any spot that is not metered, including all surface lots that will eventually be 75 cents an hour to park via a kiosk and on the first floor of the new parking garage.

Standard permit holders will be able to park in the lots behind City Hall, in the former DHS lot and the surface lots around the parking garage.

The first permit being offered on Sept. 30 will be 90 premium-all access permits for $100, which will allow permit holders to park Monday-Saturday, from 10 a.m. to midnight.

At 8 a.m. on Oct. 2, 30 premium-weekday only permits will be up for grabs for $80 which allows people to park Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

At 8 a.m. on Oct. 4, 90 standard all-access permits will go on sale for $70, which allows people to park Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to midnight.

At 8 a.m. on Oct. 7, 30 standard weekday only permits will be made available for $50, which allows people to park in select areas Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

While the permits can be purchased starting Sept. 30, they will not be activated until Oct. 7 and will be good through Nov. 7. Permits can be auto renewed only if an account is created on the city’s website and a credit or debit card is put on file.

If all of the permits are sold out, Parking Director Matt Davis said there will be a space on city’s website for people to sign up to be placed on a waiting list.

There are currently 399 available parking spaces that permit holders will be able to choose from to park.
