St. Cloud Parking Pilot ‘PLUS’

In 2021, St. Cloud started an exciting new pilot for the Parking System that has been extended through 2022. Based on feedback from Downtown businesses, the program has been improved to a PLUS series to provide further benefits and enhance the parking experience. 

Pilot ‘PLUS’ improvements will roll out January 1, 2022 and will extend through 2022. These enhancements  include:

  • FREE parking in ramps: weeknights starting at 5:00 PM and all day weekends
  • PLUS FREE parking in 5 surface lots starting at 5:00 PM and weekends 
    • Cloverleaf Lot
    • Plaza Lot
    • Swan Lot
    • River’s Edge North Lot 
    • River’s Edge South Lot
  • DISCOUNTS on Annual parking permits – 10% discount applies to all annual parking permits.

  • To increase turnover for downtown businesses, on-street meters and certain surface parking lots will require payment at all hours and all days, with the exception of no parking 2:00 AM - 6:00 AM to allow for maintenance activities. 
    • PLUS  Parking space time limits have been increased. On-street parking meter spaces may be parked in for three (3) hours and surface lot locations for five (5) hours.

  • Safety remains a priority for St. Cloud Parking. Patrols by a private security contractor, already in place in all ramps will continue.
    • PLUS Security patrol hours have been extended to ensure coverage in the earlier hours of the evening.
