[ARCHIVED] Cedar Falls Updates Parking in Downtown Municipal Lots

Parking post General

During the Cedar Falls City Council meeting on August 2, 2021, City Council voted to update parking rules in the municipal lots located in the Downtown district.

The lots will no longer require paid parking. The spaces will now be free, four-hour parking for users. The Downtown district also includes free 15 minute, 2, 3, and 24-hour options for visitors and residents. Updated signage is located throughout the area to identify the selection of parking options. Downtown enforcement hours remain Monday – Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

These updates impact the Downtown district only. Paid parking options remain in the College Hill area to help provide longer-term parking for the public. Parking is .50 cents per hour during enforcement times (Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.) in the College Hill municipal lots.

The paid parking system in the College Hill area features smart parking payment options. Users can pay for parking time at the pay station located in the lot or download the free Park Smarter mobile app. The community can view informational videos on using the pay stations, download the app, and learn about the system at
