“If there’s something going on downtown it can be pretty ridiculous,” he said.
The city says they’re working on improving parking options and on Wednesday they approved $100,000 in funding to bring back a program first rolled out in 2020 meant to temporarily ease parking pains.
Using a special code, city officials say you will be allowed park for free at meters anywhere within the downtown development area and you’ll be covered for up to two hours at the meter and you can use the code 4 times.
The city said participating businesses can also have their vallet parking reimbursed for their customers. It’s all in an effort to drive more people to local shops.
“Hopefully will encourage people to come downtown for a meal and potentially go to one of our events or just spend more time in downtown in general,” said David Barilla, with the Downtown Development Board and Community Redevelopment Agency.
