PARKING REGULATIONS

Metered Parking Regulations
  • Expired meter = more than 10 minutes past expired time
  • Over yellow line = vehicle obstructs adjoining space
  • A vehicle can not back into any metered space. Always face the meter or stall number.
  • 2-hour limit in all short-term parking
  • Red meters = loading zones at times posted on the meter; make note of the times before parking at a red meter.
  • All lots require 24 hour compliance
Violations
  • Parking Citations—in the event that you receive a citation for a parking violation, you may pay the citation through our website at pay.parkmpa.com, by phone, mail, or visiting the downtown office (see Contact Us)
  • Booted Vehicle—a parking “boot” on your vehicle indicates that you have accumulated unpaid fines. Your vehicle will be immobilized until you contact the Parking Authority and pay all unpaid citations. Though unfortunate, the “boot” is used rather than having your vehicle towed; thus saving you time and money.
  • Towed Vehicle—in the very rare event that your vehicle is towed, please contact the Parking Authority.
