Restructured parking garage fees go into effect July 1
The City and Borough of Juneau Parks & Recreation Department is restructuring parking fees for the Downtown Transit Center and Marine Parking Garage. The costs of monthly and annual parking permits will increase on July 1, and then see incremental increases the following three years. Parks & Recreation Director George Schaaf presented at today’s Public Works & Facilities Committee. Read his memo and see his presentation on the Parking Management Fund Balance here. Read FAQs here.
The fees to park at the two garages have not increased for more than a decade, though the cost of operating the facilities continues to rise. Between fiscal years 2015 and 2022, increases in utilities, insurance, maintenance, and contractual services drove a 33% increase in operating costs. Revenue has remained relatively flat since 2015, except for a decline in FY20 due to the pandemic.
The cost for hourly parking at the Marine Parking Garage, Shoppers Lot, and North Franklin Lot is remaining the same at $.75 per hour.
