Applications for employee parking permits in downtown Flagstaff are now available.
Those that work or own businesses downtown and in the Southside area will have nearly three months to apply for their permits through the new system before ParkFlag goes live.
The new pay-to-park system will have permitted parking zones for employees, and in order to qualify, a person must be an employee or a business owner that has the pay-to-park kiosks installed on the street in front of the property.
The permit costs $45 per month. For employees and business owners who do not want to purchase the permit, ParkFlag will provide them with a yearlong bus pass for free in exchange for not having a permit.
The new parking system will help the city manage it’s already limited amount of parking, and allow for funding of more parking in the future. The revenue collected from parking kiosks and fines will support the construction of an additional parking structure.
As of now, the system is scheduled to open in early August, nearly five months later than originally planned.
When it is officially up and running, drivers who do not pay for their space or go over their allotted time will receive a warning for their first violation, $35 for their second violation, and $70 for the third violation.
Drivers will be able to pay at the parking kiosks, a participating business, or use Whoosh, the new mobile app that will alert them to their expiration time.
