Leesburg Council Seeks Feedback on Downtown Holiday Parking Program

Public input session planned for Tuesday, January 25, 2011 Council meeting

From the Town of Leesburg – The Leesburg Town Council will hold a public input session on the downtown holiday parking program at the Council Meeting on Tuesday, January 25, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. in the Leesburg Town Hall.

The Town’s downtown holiday parking program provides free parking in the Town Hall Parking Garage and two hours free parking at all on-street parking meters, from Thanksgiving weekend through New Year’s Day. The holiday parking program began in 2005 and is intended to complement the holiday shopping & dining promotions offered by downtown merchants. 

This year, free parking in the Town Hall Parking Garage has been extended to February 23, 2011, while the Town Council evaluates a number of options with regard to parking fees.  The Council is considering the elimination of all parking fees in the Town Hall Parking Garage.

At the public input session, the Town Council invites downtown business owners and employees as well as other customers of the Town Hall Parking Garage and on-street parking meters to offer their opinions on how well the parking program functions, its efficacy in attracting customers to shop and dine downtown during the holiday shopping season, any parking problems created or exacerbated by the program, and any other observations or opinions on the holiday parking program.
