City announces "T-Day Weekend is Free Day Weekend" promotion

Thanksgiving Day weekend is Free Day weekend when it comes to on-street and public surface lot parking in Downtown this coming weekend. On-street and City-owned surface lot parking meters will not be enforced from 10 p.m. on Wednesday through 8 a.m. on Monday as part of the City's "T-Day Weekend is Free Day Weekend" promotion.

A unique set of circumstances converge this week that led to the city promotion.

Thursday is a national holiday. Friday is a City holiday. County employees will not be working at the Courthouse on Friday. Students are, for the most part, out of town, so there is less concern about the warehousing of cars on Downtown streets. Finally, many Downtown merchants are impacted by Friday street closings for the Canopy of Lights ceremony.
