Payment for Red Deer lots, monthly parking to resume Tuesday

Drivers parking in Red Deer’s downtown lots will need to pay starting Tuesday.

The city will reinstate the requirement of payment for daily and monthly parking in downtown lots.

During the initial stages of the city’s response to COVID-19, monthly parking fees and payment for on-street and off-street parking were removed.

In June, payment for on-street meters resumed.

The Sorensen Station parkade will reopen to monthly pass holders Tuesday. No daily parking will be available at the parkade.

Enforcement will also resume in these areas starting Tuesday.

“This fee reinstatement aligns with many businesses resuming work in our downtown and Phase 2 of the provincial relaunch strategy,” said Erin Stuart, the city’s inspections and licensing manager.

“However, we do understand that not everyone has returned downtown and there are still people working remotely, so we are happy to work with residents to do what works for every situation.”

Sorenson Station will remain locked at all times to increase safety and security for users.

Monthly pass holders can enter by using an access card at the roll gates and stairwell doors.

Pass holders who put their account on hold will have had their access card deactivated.

Residents can visit the temporary city customer service centre at the Recreation Centre if a new access card is required.
