Free Parking at College Station
We got this press release recently from the Urban District Alliance (UDA)….
Parking Decks Update:
Dec. 18, 2008
For Immediate Release
The new downtown College Station and Heer’s parking decks will offer
free parking seven days a week for all downtown patrons effective
This creates more free weekend parking for visitors to all downtown
businesses in addition to the validated parking that had already been
offered by Hollywood Theaters. Under this full-time free parking, no
validation will be needed at the theaters.
The City is able to offer the free parking at least until the
additional build out of the College Station project is completed. The
capacity in the parking decks and the two surface lots on the northeast and
northwest corners of Campbell Avenue and Olive Street was designed to handle
both the theater traffic and the eventual build out of College Station. A
total of 975 spaces are available, with about 800 of them covered parking
adjacent to the project.
The current capacity of the parking decks and surface lots is proving
to be sufficient to guarantee enough parking for theater patrons, so the
City is able to add free parking on weekends as well as during the week.
