New parking zones will be implemented in Downtown Bend starting July 1 in an effort to make parking downtown easier.
The Downtown Parking District will be split into two zones. Zone A will consist of all on-street parking and will all be free for two hours. Zone B will consist of all off-street parking in the various lots around Downtown and in the parking garage, and will provide more long-term paid parking options.
The amount of free on-street parking will not be changed! Parking on Irving Street will be converted to free two-hour parking as a part of the creation of the zones. There are about 1,800 free parking spaces available in the Downtown Parking District. The majority of parking downtown is still free for two hours.
