In continuing efforts to promote economic development, the Town provides parking opportunities for merchants and employees who work in the Downtown area. In 2009, the Town adopted a Downtown Parking Management Plan which includes several improvements to, and an expansion of, the Downtown Employee Parking Permit Program. Merchants and employees of the Downtown area are encouraged to participate in the employee permit program, as it allows all day parking in select areas of the Downtown while enhancing customer parking turnover within the prime downtown locations.

Employee Parking Zones
Employee permit parking areas are now divided into three “zones” throughout the Downtown. The “zones” are colored white, red, and blue on the Employee Permit Parking Map for reference purposes. When purchasing a permit for Zone 2 (“red”) or Zone 3 (“blue”), it is required that your place of business or employment is in the immediate vicinity.

Additionally, parking zones posted in the field on existing parking signs.
