City of Raleigh Announces Complimentary Parking for Public Meeting Attendees

The City of Raleigh has approved a six-month pilot program that will provide complimentary parking vouchers for citizens attending meetings of City boards and commissions, including the City Council. The purpose of the program is to increase citizen participation in public meetings.

Complimentary parking is for people attending a public meeting held at either the Raleigh Municipal Building, with parking located at 201 West Morgan Street and at One Exchange Plaza, with parking located at 233 South Wilmington Street in the Moore Square Station parking deck.

City staff will be available at all approved public meeting locations to hand out parking vouchers. Attendees will be asked to register their name to receive a parking voucher. When exiting the deck please provide both the parking deck ticket and the voucher to the booth cashier.

Vouchers will be valid only for the date of the public meeting. The stamped date will be displayed in the "Valid for this date only" box. At the completion of the pilot program, City staff will evaluate the effectiveness of the program and present findings to the City Council for its consideration.
