FREE Parking Surprise: Is it your luck day?
Thursday, November 01, 2012

Beginning on Thursday, November 1 the City’s Parking System Enterprise will make twoparking meters in the downtown area FREE every day. Where? Well, it’s a surprise! Staff will move the free parking meters to a new random location each morning by 9:00 a.m.  Whoever happens to pull into that parking spot after 9:00 a.m. gets free parking while they shop, dine and enjoy downtown.

“This is an innovative idea for City government to bring a little fun to the downtown experience. It’s a simple way to brighten someone’s day and thank them for visiting downtown,” says Mayor Bach. 

NOTE TO MEDIA:On Thursday, November 1 at Noon, Mayor Steve Bach will be there to greet the first recipient of the free parking surprise.  Meet outside the City Administration Building (30 S. Nevada Avenue) at 11:45 a.m. and we will walk to the designated meter location.
