The free parking program at downtown parking lots, street meters and at the Locust Street parking garage began on Saturday November 30, 2013 and ran until Wednesday January 1, 2014. The free parking on Saturdays began on January 4. This is the first time that a free parking campaign of this scale has been done in Downtown Burlington.
To measure the effectiveness of the program we would like to get your feedback. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey by February 7, 2014.
Your comments and suggestions will be used to develop recommendations to make the December 2014 free parking campaign, and ongoing free Saturday parking, more effective.
