[ARCHIVED] Downtown parking changes take effect Sept. 8

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -- The new downtown parking plan approved last month by the Clarksville Parking Commission will take effect Tuesday, Sept. 8.

The changes apply only to on-street metered spaces, which will now require a 25-cent payment to begin a parking session. The plan also expands the time limit at on-street metered spaces to four hours. 

The changes do not raise parking rates and are designed to create a simpler, more consumer-friendly approach to downtown parking and overcome some of the system’s equipment and enforcement challenges.

The changes taking effect on Tuesday include:

  • Deactivating all parking sensors, and requiring a 25-cent payment to start a downtown parking session.

  • The first 25 cents provides 15 minutes of parking time and one hour of courtesy time. 

  • Thereafter, parking will remain $2 per hour, payable by coin or credit card, and parking sessions will be limited to a 4-hour maximum at all on-street metered parking spaces.

  • The effective rate for four hours of parking will be $6.25.

Also notable:

  • The changes do not affect fees and procedures in place at the downtown public parking garages and city-controlled surface parking lots.

  • On-street metered parking spaces remain free on weekends and after 5 p.m. on weekdays.

The plan, which was approved unanimously, was recommended to the Parking Commission by Premier Parking, a consultant hired to provide parking management, and the City Finance & Revenue Department, which supervises parking operations. 


The Parking Commission has approved a 4-hour time limit for on-street metered parking downtown.
