The City of Des Moines has developed a new parking strategy for its vibrant and growing downtown area. What began on Jan 1st with changes to the parking ramps, is now moving forward to include the metered spaces in the Court Avenue Entertainment District. These changes include extended enforcement hours and the addition of free, nearby parking options. Following this link to learn about the changes, check out the maps, and see what's ahead!
The meter enforcement changes take effect TONIGHT, Jan 17th. There will be a grace period where warnings will be issued for only overtime parking violations that occur during the new, extended enforcement hours. Violations other than overtime parking will continue to be enforced. THE GRACE PERIOD ENDS JAN. 31ST.
Thanks for working with us as we work to make downtown Des Moines THE place to live, work, and play!
