Downtown Parking Regulations

Effective July 1, 2013

In March of 2013, the Burlington City Council voted to approve some strategic modifications to downtown parking regulations and enforcement. These changes were recommended by city staff as a result of the Downtown Parking Plan completed in November of 2012. The goal of the regulation adjustments and increased enforcement is to transition long-term parkers into the city’s lots, making on-street parking more readily available to downtown visitors and short-term parkers.  

With questions about Downtown Parking or Parking Tickets, please contact the Burlington Police Department at 229-3503.

Effective July 1, 2013:

  • Downtown parking regulations will be enforced from 8am-5pm Mondays through Fridays. 

  • Drivers found illegally using ADA (Handicapped) placards could receive state citations resulting in a fine of up to $250. 

  • Enforcement efforts will focus on blocks with the greatest turnover issues. 

  • Enforcement will begin in 2-hour parking spots located in city lots.  

  • In addition to the changes listed above, the City will also be converting a total of 92 spaces in city lots #1 (behind Company Shops Market) and #2 (beside the Depot)to all-day parking spaces. 

  • Lighting will be added and vegetation maintenance will increase visibility in city lot #1. 

  • The City also plans to conduct a biennial review of parking occupancy and turnover to ensure that enough parking remains available in downtown. 

If you live or work in downtown, please do your part to help downtown flourish by taking advantage of the ample, free, all-day parking available in city parking lots. By utilizing the off-street parking lots, on-street parking is made available to those visiting and doing business in downtown.
