Proposed City-Managed Parking Rate Changes Are Open to Public Comment

The City of Eugene is seeking public comment on a proposed parking rate schedule for City-managed spaces that will go into effect on February 1, 2019.


This rate adjustment will help recover costs associated with addressing $10 million of deferred maintenance in the downtown parking structures. Parking Services has started work on improvement projects, including replacing two parking garage’s stairs, LED light retrofitting throughout the garages, and a deep cleaning of each garage.


Upcoming improvement projects include the addition of a unified wayfinding system throughout parking locations, modernization of garage elevators, the installation of security cameras, recoating of garage deck surfaces and funding of additional Downtown Ambassadors to aid parking customers and create a more welcoming experience.


In addition to these improvements, the rate adjustment will allow Parking Services to address concerns identified in a 2018 customer satisfaction survey. Top requests include brighter lighting, safer stairwells and elevators, and cleaner facilities, in addition to the installation of visible cameras for video surveillance. The rate adjustments will also allow for expansion of other requested improvements, including further safety measures and additional directional parking signage.


Additionally, a lower-cost parking location is being added along with the rate change. A $30/month permit option will be available at the Riverfront lot.
