Old Town Santa Fe District Parking Permit Pilot Program
The parking situation in Old Town Santa Fe has long been complicated by the historical development standards, the density of restaurants and mixed-use nature in which retail and residential uses compete for limited parking spaces. Newer development in the area decreased available public parking and replacement of public parking has not yet been developed. As a result from discussions with the Old Town Santa Fe Merchants Association, a one (1) year Permit Parking Program is proposed. The one (1) year Parking Permit Pilot Program is scheduled to commence on April 5, 2016. The intent of the program is to provide parking for businesses, residents, and customers. Additionally, the program has a basic premise that while public parking lots should be free for all customers, the City is not able to publicly subsidize nor provide a gift of public resources for private employee or resident parking.
UPDATE: The Program is effective August 1, 2016. As such, citations will be issued to all vehicles not in compliance with the program guidelines and stated signage.
