Parking Ordinance Update

The Jacksonville City Council unanimously passed Ordinance 2012-674 at its December 11th meeting. This ordinance modifies the way that City-owned parking facilities are managed, allowing the City’s Public Parking Office the flexibility to manage parking resources to best meet Downtown’s parking needs, respond to market conditions and incentivize parking. DVI commends the City Council for passing this ordinance, which will provide a more customer service-oriented approach to public parking and will help to change the misperception that parking Downtown is difficult.

A recent survey by the Downtown Marketing Collaborative determined that 51% of the nearly 4,000 respondents perceive that parking Downtown is not easy. What would improve your Downtown parking experience?
