Plattsburgh, NY – The City of Plattsburgh said it is advancing plans for a paid parking system in the downtown district as well as City Beach.

The city wants to add a parking meter to 6 downtown lots: the southern half of Durkee
On-street parking, Arnie Pavone parking lot, Broad Street parking lot, Court Street parking lot, City Hall Place parking lot, and public sections of the Clinton County Government Center.

On-street parking will remain free but will be subject to a two-hour delay. Additionally, the northern half of the Durkee Street lot will remain free with a two-hour limit.

The recommended fee structure at Plattsburgh Common Council includes an hourly fee of $1.00 and a daily fee of $7.25. A limited number of quarterly and annual parking permits will be available and priority access will be given to those who live and/or work downtown.

Proposed enforcement hours for downtown paid parking are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

The City of Plattsburgh also wants to add multi-space parking kiosks at City Beach in Plattsburgh as a replacement for the beach entrance booth. The areas subject to paid parking are the parking areas located between the
Central Crete and the beach. The Dog Park and Crete Center car parks will remain free.

The rate structure recommended to the Commission includes an hourly rate of $2.50, a daily rate of $18 and a rate of $30
seasonal permit fees. Paid parking would be applied to the beach from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day.

All tariff structures must be approved by the Municipal Council.
