Metered Parking

The cost for metered parking is $1.25 per hour (on-street) and $1.00 per hour (off-street). On street metered parking has a two hour time limit. Shorter on-street time limits help to ensure regular turnover of vehicles, and allows customers to conveniently park close to business establishments.

Pay and Display Parking

Pay and Display parking lots have a minimum 15-minute purchase time $0.25. When parking is needed for longer periods of time, residents and visitors are encouraged to park in the municipal lots which have five-hour or eight-hour time limits.

Please look for posted signage that indicates the time limit in the lots. Unexpired time on a Pay and Display stub can be used at any other municipal Pay and Display parking lot, or metered parking lot in the downtown area.

Downtown Parking Permits 

If your building does not have sufficient space for you and/or your staff vehicles, monthly parking permits are available from the City for one of the numerous municipal lots located in the Downtown core. The cost for the month is minimal, and helps to keep the metered parking spots available for your customers.
