If you will be conducting business downtown for an extended period, there are 2 ways available for you to park legally without the concern of receiving a time-limit citation.
Permit at City Hall
You may go to the City Clerk’s Office on the 1st floor of City Hall and purchase a permit for $10, which will allow you to park in any City Parking Lot for the entire day.
The pay-to-park facility is located in the city parking lot between Washington Avenue and Wesley Street across from the YMCA. The fee for parking in this lot is $2 per car per day. To use this lot, simply park your vehicle and note the parking stall number in which you are located. Walk to the pay station and deposit $2 in the numbered slot that corresponds to the parking space number. You may then conduct your business for the remainder of the day.
As with all City of Jackson parking lot regulations, these programs are in effect between the hours of 8 a.m.and 5 p.m. weekdays.
Parking is free after 5 p.m. weekdays and on weekends.
