[OMS_MANAGERS] Time limit for Downtown Parking

Downtown Albany Has lots of different limits dependent upon what the business is that fronts the space.

 *
Most of the street parking that is directly in front of a business is 3 hour
(a few are 30 minute and a couple are 10 minute).
 *
We have all day customer employee permit spaces that are on street but not in front of a business
(i.e. around a surface lot or on the side of a building).
 *
We have (3) 4 hour customer lots.
 *
(1) all day customer only lot.
 *
(1) all day employee free lot.
 *
And (3) Resident/Employee lease lots.

Clearly worded and well placed signage is a must.



Business owners can apply to have the timing of the space directly in front of their business changed.

But it has to be one of the on street limits (i.e.. all day, 3 hour 30 minute or 10 minute).

Downtown Salem has had 2 hour limit for quite some time. Our parking studies for the last four years indicate it is working efficiently. We also have two free parking garages which are underutilized. We have some longer term 10 hour spots closer to the Courthouse and metered in a limited area. Our average stay has been consistent in the last four years with just around 1 hour and 45 minutes. Businesses do not encourage their customers to use the parking structures especially for the hair salons, the personal services businesses seem to need extended stay.

Erik,

La Grande currently has two hours parking limits throughout the downtown area.  About a year ago, we explored changing to three hours.  While this seems to be the more desirable time allotment for a lot of the community, in the end, the  cost of replacing all of the signs was just too much for our town to support.

The City of Klamath Falls is considering increasing the time limit of parking in its public parking lots from 2 hours to 3 hours.   Currently both the parking lots and streets have a 2 hour limit.  Does anyone have a 3 hour limit for parking in their Downtown?  Does anyone have 2 different time limits for parking lot and street?  What other time limits do other Downtown have?

Thanks for your help.
