Parking adjustments being made in Downtown Salisbury

Parking 01

SALISBURY, Md. – With construction soon beginning on Unity Square in Downtown Salisbury, officials have announced some parking adjustments for the Downtown area.

Parking Lot 15, which is located at the corner of W. Market Street and Camden Street near the old Parker Place building, will transition from permit parking to a public pay-to-part lot. The area includes a total of 51 paces, 4 of which are for Electric Vehicles and 6 are dedicated as Handicapped Parking. This will allow for public parking for patrons of businesses near the entrance to the plaza as well as those along W. Market Street.

The lower end of Parking Lot 1 (the half of the lot closer to the river) will turn into permitted parking, with over 150 spaces. Any vehicles that previously had permits for Lot 15 will not use Lower Lot 1, directly across the street. The entrance for Lower Lot 1 is found on W. Market Street, across from the River.

“Access to downtown for all visitors is vital to supporting our businesses and community, so we want to make a variety of parking options widely available and accessible for everyone. We want to thank all residents for their continued patience while we navigate these new parking options together” said Mayor John “Jack” R. Heath.

With these parking changes, residents are reminded that the parking garage will have free two hour parking while Unity Square construction is underway. There are also multiple areas of pay-to-park street parking to ensure multiple parking options for residents and visitors. There is also dedicated parking for library patrons in marked spots on the ground floor of the garage.
