(PLATTSBURGH- Wednesday December 6th, 2023) - With the completion of the Margaret Street construction project, downtown paid parking enforcement will recommence for downtown City parking lots on Monday December 11th, 2023.
On-street parking remains free everywhere in the downtown district. A standardized two-hour time limit for all on-street and timed parking areas within the Special Assessment District is enforced Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. except holidays. On-street parking regulations will be enforced for all vehicles regardless of whether the owner has purchased a parking permit.
Paid parking lots will follow the same enforcement structure as on-street areas (i.e., Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. except holidays).The fee structure will remain the same at $1.00 hourly fee, a $90.00 semi-annual (6 months) permit fee, and a $171.00 annual (12 months) permit fee.
Those using the public section of the Clinton County Government Center lot will be entitled to their first hour of parking free of charge, though they will still have to enter their plate number upon entering the lot as is required in the other lots. The northern half of the Durkee Street parking lot can be used free of charge but will have a two-hour time limit for all vehicles similar to downtown’s on-street parking areas. Permits are not eligible for use in the northern half of the Durkee Street parking lot or in the public section of the Clinton County Government Center lot.
Paid Parking Permits
All parking permits must be purchased through the City’s online permit portal at https://plattsburgh.thepermitportal.com/. The permit portal is currently active.
No parking fees will be charged to those parking in the handicap accessible spaces with appropriately displayed placards.
During snow emergencies declared by the City, all parking fees shall be suspended for the duration of the snow emergency. Vehicle owners must still abide by other snow emergency regulations including a prohibition on on-street parking and the removal of vehicles from those lots in which the emergency lighting system is flashing. Vehicles found to be in violation of snow emergency regulations are subject to ticketing and/or towing.
