Off-Street Parking

Off-street parking provides convenient parking in a protected location. Nearly three-quarters of all off-street spaces are located in decks. The remainder are in parking lots. There are now more than 2,300 off-street parking spaces.

  • Over 2,200 spaces are in two parking decks:
    • 4th and Church
    • 6th and Cherry

  • Third-party billing for special event parking is available.
