Welcome to Parking Services

The City operates a complex and dynamic parking system to support a diverse array of business, entertainment and residential needs. This site can be a resource for you as you get to know the parking system, ask yourself what type of parking best suits your need, and make future plans with family and friends. Additionally, you'll learn about all the great efforts your parking contributions support!

Who We Are

The Parking Services team works Monday through Saturday to promote proper use of the parking system and ensure that all members of our community are able to access parking that suits their needs. Our officers are professionals, and they are committed to positive and productive interactions with the public. If you see a parking officer, say hi and don't hesitate to ask a question!

Where does the money generated from Parking go?

Back to the community! Parking money goes into ensuring our city remains vibrant and beautiful. Parking dollars are put into infrastructure improvements and enhancements throughout the downtown!

Where We're Going

We're launching a Downtown Parking study in an effort to solidify where we're going and move towards a plan for the future! And a University District Parking Study is currently underway in an effort to analyze current on and off-street parking options and determine whether to create a new part of our parking system! Learn more about these studies.
