Parking Benefit Districts

The City is proposing to establish two distinct Parking Benefit Districts, a “Downtown Benefit District” and a “River Benefit District,” to encourage support for on‐street paid parking by dedicating a percentage of net meter revenue back to the areas it was generated.

  • Revenue generated within the Parking Benefit Districts would accrue to the Parking Management Fund, and 30% of net revenue (after expenses) would be allocated for expenditure within the Districts.
  • The Council-appointed Parking Advisory Board would oversee the distribution of funds.
  • Specific terms and conditions for the use of these funds, are proposed to be established by Ordinance.
  • Common Parking Benefit District expenditures include sidewalk/walkability improvements, district beautification, and transportation or parking investments.
