Picky Parkers Avoiding Top Levels Of Downtown Raleigh Decks

Posted May 20, 2004

— Many people complain about the lack of parking in downtown Raleigh.

City leaders say there are plenty of spaces -- the problem is people are not using them.

The top levels of two city-owned parking decks typically sit empty because drivers do not like to park there.

The city is starting a pilot program, offering reduced rates to downtown workers as an incentive to use the vacant spots at the Moore Square and Wilmington Street parking decks.

The new rate for top-floor parking is $35 a month; the normal rate is about $70.

City leaders believe the idea can open up to 300 spots on the street for visitors.
