Parking

Changes in 2020

Additional handicap-placard parking is being added in Depot Town, Downtown, and West Cross. The Ballard Street Parking Lot (behind Golden Wall) is now free parking, however, you must have a resident or employee permit to park there overnight. 
In Depot Town, on-street parking timing will be adjusted to two-hour parking, Monday through Saturday, 10a-7p.  In the Freighthouse and Maple Street parking lots, parking will be three-hour parking, Monday through Saturday, 10a-7p. As of the week of June 8th, payment kiosks have begun to be installed in Depot Town, and on-street spaces have begun to be signed and numbered for payment, however, paid parking will not begin until early September.  Enforcement on timing restrictions will begin prior to enforcement of paid parking.
As always, blocking crosswalks, fire hydrants, driveways, or fire access aisles; occupying a handicap-placard space without a handicap placard; or otherwise parking in violation of the Michigan Vehicle Code and/or posted signage is subject to enforcement action.
