REVENUES FROM PAID PARKING IN MAY 2020 WILL GO TO LOCAL BUSINESSES FOR COVID-19 PROTECTIVE MEASURES.

“Manitou Springs Parking Pays It Forward” beginning May 4th:
Revenues from paid parking in May will go to local businesses for COVID-19 protective measures.

As the coronavirus event continues, paid-parking in downtown Manitou Springs will resume as of 7:00 am on May 4th. All revenues will be donated for COVID-19 protection equipment for Manitou Springs businesses. This includes the City of Manitou Springs’ on-street parking and city-owned lots. The 100-400 blocks of Ruxton and Winter will remain Residential Parking only until further notice!

Colorado has phased from the “Stay at Home” to “Safer at Home” model and businesses are changing how they operate in response to the outbreak. As health officials continue to encourage “social distancing” — keeping away from other people — to slow the spread of the virus, businesses are doing their best to offer protection to their customers. Revenues from May parking rates will be important to assist their efforts to offer this protection.

Plans are to open the kiosks for payment options but the City is recommending customers use their parking mobile APP (Park Mobile) to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by eliminating cashier and kiosk interactions. Regardless, kiosks will be cleaned at least 3 times per day to reduce the spread of the virus.

Manitou Springs parking operator, SP Plus, is still expected to have staff on site to address basic operational, safety and maintenance needs. The City is asking visitors and residents to continue to follow parking restrictions and signs on-street, in lots and respect the Residential Parking areas.

FREE PARKING AT MANITOU SPRINGS UNTIL APRIL 30, 2020

Exceptions: Barr Trail Lot and 400 blocks of Euston and Winter paid parking & 100-300 blocks of Ruxton Residential Parking Only!

As the coronavirus pandemic continues, parking in downtown Manitou Springs will be free until Thursday, April 30th (No refunds on fees in lots or on-street prior to this announcement).

The City of Manitou Springs and the Metro District has instituted free parking effective Sunday, March 22nd, for much of the parking system — with some exceptions (Barr Trail Parking Lot and 400 block on Euston and Winter. 100-300 blocks of Ruxton Residential Parking only).

The move comes as several downtown businesses have changed how they operate in response to the outbreak, and as health officials encourage “social distancing” — keeping away from other people — to slow the spread of the virus. That includes encouraging people to work from home.

SP+’s current plan is to forgo collecting hourly fees at on-street parking areas and public lots. This includes the Wichita and Smischny lots which are owned by the Metro District. Residential Permit Parking (RPP) areas will still be enforced at this time. Also, the Barr Trail Lot, 400 blocks of Euston and Winter will remain paid parking and 100-300 blocks of Ruxton Avenue will be residential parking only to assist with traffic control.

The decision to not charge hourly off-street and on-street parking customers is directly aimed at helping stop COVID-19 by eliminating cashier and kiosk interactions with customers.

Manitou Springs parking operator, SP+, is still expected to have staff on-site to address basic operational, safety and maintenance needs, and the city is asking visitors and residents to continue to follow parking restrictions and signs on-street and in lots.

While there’s an abundance of free parking now, for those who opt to park at the Barr Trail Parking Lot, Euston or Winter, the city is still enforcing meter regulations and charging appropriate fees in these areas.
