[ARCHIVED] Commission OKs downtown parking plan

DT Parking 2

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -- The Clarksville Parking Commission has approved a downtown parking plan that maintains the current fee structure and sets a four-hour time limit at all on-street metered spaces. 

The changes, approved unanimously at a special called meeting Tuesday, are designed to create a simpler, more consumer-friendly approach to downtown parking and overcome some of the current system’s equipment and enforcement challenges.

The changes will take effect on Tuesday, Sept. 8.

The approved changes include:

  • Deactivating all parking sensors, and making downtown parking a “pay to play” environment.

  • A 25-cent payment will be required at all meters to start a downtown parking session.

  • The first 25 cents provides 15 minutes of parking time and one hour of courtesy time. 

  • Thereafter, parking will remain $2 per hour, payable by coin or credit card, and parking sessions will be limited to a 4-hour maximum at all downtown on-street metered parking spaces.

  • The effective rate for four hours of parking would be a maximum of $6.25.

Also notable:

  • The changes approved Tuesday do not affect fees and procedures in place at the three downtown public parking garages and city-controlled surface parking lots.

  • On-street metered parking spaces remain free on weekends and after 5 p.m. on weekdays.

The plan was recommended to the Parking Commission by Premier Parking, a consultant hired to provide parking management, and the City Finance & Revenue Department, which supervises parking operations. 

The Parking Commission has approved a 4-hour time limit for on-street metered parking downtown.
