Parking Downtown

There are a number of off-street parking spaces, 2 hour and 10 hour meters, and handicapped spaces in addition to the affordable Laz Parking Garage on West Street. Whether you plan to stay for a short or extended period of time, we have you covered. 

If you choose to park at the parking garage, the first 30 minutes are free! An hour is $1, two hours is $2, or you can park all day for $3. If you park after 5pm there is a $2 flat rate for the whole night. The parking garage is a secured clean facility with 24/7 camera surveillance and a full staff 7 days a week from 6am - 11pm that is covered from extreme weather conditions.

If you choose to park on the street, parking is enforced from 8am - 6pm on Mondays through Fridays. If you park at a metered space with a Parking Kiosk, be prepared to enter your license plate number. Parking kiosks accept debit/credit cards (Visa and MasterCard) and coins, but no bills. There is a 2-hour minimum ($1) when using cards.
