St. Armands Paid Parking Adjustments Begin Soon

Government

Paid parking operations in the St. Armand Parking District will be adjusted beginning the week of Oct. 11 to align with rates and hours of operation in downtown Sarasota providing consistency within the parking districts. On-street parking rates and times will become uniform throughout the St. Armands Parking District at $1.50 per hour, the current maximum rate.  Meters will be in service from 10 am - 8 pm. Monday through Saturday, excluding City-observed holidays. 

“We’re moving to a one-zone, one-rate program in St. Armands,” said Parking General Manager Mark Lyons.  “With over 700,000 transactions since the start-up, data shows that 85% of on-street parking users on St. Armands currently opt to use the $1.50 per hour spaces. The rate change will provide consistency throughout the St. Armands parking district and downtown’s system, making it easier to use.” 

When using the Park Mobile app or a pay station, 10 minutes free on-street parking will be provided in the St. Armands Parking District like downtown. Rates for the St. Armands Garage also will become consistent with the City’s two parking garages in downtown.  The first two hours will be free, the third hour $3 and for each additional hour it will be $1 per hour or part thereof. The Fillmore Lot will be adjusted from 75 cents per hour to $1 per hour or part thereof.  Approximately 150 free on-street parking spaces, located within a short walk of shops and restaurants on St. Armands Circle, will remain free along North and South Boulevard of the Presidents. The adjustments to the St. Armands Parking District will provide consistency with downtown paid parking and are necessary to meet requirements tied to the revenue bonds which funded the construction of the St. Armands Garage.
