City-Owned Parking Lots

  • City-owned parking lots in the downtown require parking permits, which can be purchased on an hourly basis from parking kiosks located in each lot. The cost to park in any of these lots is $2 per hour. Parking permits are registered by license plate number, so you do not have to display your receipt on the dashboard of your vehicle.
  • The Yellow Lot (located on Franklin Street) offers two hours of free parking. Users must enter their license plate number at the kiosk in order to park for free in this lot.
  • There are several free 2-hour parking and 30-minute parking spaces in the Franklin Street area (shown in pink and orange on the map below). You do not have to enter your license plate number into the kiosk to park in these spaces.
  • The downtown parking lots can be viewed on the maps below. The starbursts on the map represent the locations of the parking kiosks.
