Breckenridge changes parking system to improve guest experience

Breckenridge has parking changes coming this November aimed at increasing guest parking in the town's core.
Parking studies conducted over the last 10 years have revealed that the sustainability of our core business area is reliant on the availability of parking for customers, according to a press release from Breckenridge Police Department.

The Tiger Dredge lot, formerly restricted to pay parking only, is being made available for employees with a general employee permit for both the north and south district. This will increase the number of available parking spaces for employees, according to the press release.

General employee permits are $50 and can be used from July 1 to June 30 in designated lots; this year, all employee permits expiring in 2010 have been extended to Nov. 1 to ensure a smooth transition to the new parking system.

Employee permits have been regionalized (north and south), and permits will be issued based on the employer's address. Washington Avenue is the boundary between north and south. The Tiger Dredge and Barney Ford lots will be available to both north and south general permit holders.

Courthouse-lot specific permits will be sold beginning Nov. 1. The Courthouse lot will function primarily as a three-hour customer lot with the availability of 25 permits for $150 each. General employee permits will not be valid in this lot as of Nov. 1.

To reduce parking challenges for south-end employees, general employee parking will now be available in the Klack Placer lot.

The Lower Exchange lot permit fee has been reduced from $500 to $350 and is valid for all-day covered parking in the core of town.

Requisites and regulations for residential, delivery, shuttle and other parking permits will remain unchanged. These permits may be renewed at the Breckenridge Police Department, as they are currently expired.

The town encourages use of the Summit Stage and Breckenridge Free Ride transit system, for they offer an eco-friendly alternative and free up town parking spaces.
