The Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and the River District Alliance (RDA) are working together to offer free parking to customers of downtown businesses.
The free parking program is valid on Mondays – Thursdays after 4 p.m. It began June 15 and is offered at the two city garages located at City of Palms Garage on 2118 Bay St. and the Main Street Garage on 2286 Main St. through Sept. 30.
Participating restaurants and retail shops will distribute parking vouchers to their customers that can be used any time after 4 p.m. Monday – Thursday. Customers must request a voucher from participating merchants. Vouchers are good for one day only and may not be used on weekends or before 4 p.m.
“During this challenging time the CRA wanted to support downtown business owners with a parking program that would not only benefit businesses but our community as well,” says Michele Hylton-Terry CRA executive director.
“Almost all of the businesses in downtown are locally owned and operated, and are open for business …. by supporting them we are supporting our local economy and community. The city garages have ample parking and are accessible to all downtown businesses.”
