City creates new parking lot for Downtown Jackson workers

Parking Lot 9A in Downtown Jackson

Employees of Downtown Jackson businesses no longer have to fret about where they will park when going to work. The City of Jackson has created a special parking lot where downtown business employees can park for free during the day. 

Downtown Jackson has added dozens of new businesses and apartments in recent years. More people coming to the downtown area has created new parking demands, especially for employees who drive downtown daily to work in restaurant and retail establishments. Wanting to alleviate parking concerns, the City’s Engineering Division took a section of Parking Lot 9 and made it dedicated downtown employee parking. 

Renamed Parking Lot 9A, the 35-vehicle lot at the corner of S. MLK Drive and E. Cortland Street is set aside for downtown employees to park for free from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The lot was recently resurfaced, with additional lighting and signage added to the employee parking area. 

City Manager Jonathan Greene says it’s important for the City to be mindful of downtown workers. “Businesses are tightly packed in Downtown Jackson, meaning many of them do not have space for employee parking,” Greene said. “Providing this new parking lot is a small thing we can do for the local workforce that makes a big impact in our local economy.”  

No permit is required for employees to use Parking Lot 9A. After 5 p.m. and on weekends, parking fees are relaxed and all City of Jackson downtown parking lots can be used for free. More information about parking in Downtown Jackson can be found by visiting the Parking section of the City website.
