Parking & Transportation

Downtown parking meters have gotten smarter with the installation of solar powered smart parking pay stations.  These new units accept credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover), cash, and coins, for payment.

The smart meters also offer state-of-the-art technology that can provide important data for patrons in the future, including occupancy information in different zones, as well as technology that will aid in future planning and resource management for our parking expansion.  

Parking Enforcement Hours: 10:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Current parking rates: $.50 per hour

Downtown 'Quick Park' Zones

Beginning on Wednesday December, 04, select parking spaces in the downtown district will be designated as "30 – minute free" quick zones.  The purpose of the free 30 minute parking spaces is to help local customers need a short time (Free 30 minutes or less) to grocery shop or pick up goods or pick-up-take-out food orders, etc…

The newly marked parking spaces will be introduced as a pilot program.  Check out this map to view the 'Quick Zone' space locations.  Spaces will be enforced Wednesday – Friday between 4:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. and Saturdays between 10:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.  Parking enforcement hours are meant to accommodate the quick parking needs of the ‘after work’ shopper during the downtown’s busiest weekday and weekend hours.  Parking remains free on Sundays.
