FLAGSTAFF, Arizona (AP) – After nearly a year, Flagstaff plans to resume enforcement of downtown pay parking.
The City of Flagstaff announced that drivers will have to pay for parking from March 1st.
At the start of the pandemic, officials suspended paid parking to encourage patronage over downtown businesses. However, the deadlines for parking spaces were still monitored.
When it picks up, the pay-to-park program will be in operation for shortened hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Parking is typically $ 1 an hour.
Parking tickets for employees in the area are 75% cheaper than usual or available for USD 10 per month.
There will be "pick-up zones" where people can pick up groceries or do short deals in order to park without paying.
All parking machines where customers pay are cleaned daily.
