The new Annual Parking Pass is now available for purchase through the City. The new pass comes into effect on July 1 and is valid until the end of 2016, for use in all downtown yellow parking lots.
Mayor Jeff Lehman says its about making parking downtown more convenient.
The Annual Parking Pass will sell for $576 plus taxes, which is 20% less expensive compared to the current price of 12 monthly parking passes. The cost of the 2016 pass has been prorated for six months to $288 plus taxes, because it is being introduced halfway through the year.
The pass is a pilot project to determine how much demand there is for annual parking passes, and to try to make parking downtown more convenient for people who live or work there.
