2024 Downtown Employee Parking Permit Program Is Now Open
The Downtown Employee Permit Program aims to offer parking for Downtown merchants and employees, fostering economic vitality by optimizing patron parking. The fees for employee permit parking have remained similar for more than 13 years, with a fee waiver during the pandemic. Parking permit fees have been reinstated for 2024 through a new online permit purchasing system, making it easier for business owners and employees to participate.
As part of the purchasing process, you must provide proof of employment either in the form of a recent pay stub or a business card. Verification can be completed through the online ordering process, or by submitting documents in person.
Employee Permit Parking Areas
Employee permit parking areas are now divided into three "zones" throughout the Downtown. When applying for a permit for Zone 2 ("red") or Zone 3 ("blue"), it is required that your place of business or employment is in the immediate vicinity. All permit holders are eligible to park in Zone 1 ("yellow"). Please reference the permit parking map when determining your parking zone. Additionally, parking zones posted in the field on existing parking signs.
Permit fees for 2024 are:
Zone 1: $25 per calendar year
Zones 2 & 3: $50 per calendar year
Permits are valid from January 1 through December 31 of the year issued.
Proof of employment within the Downtown area is required, and must be verified online or in person at the Danville Police Department.
Employee permit parking is only valid in areas marked "All Day Parking By Permit Only." Please note: There is no employee parking allowed in the Clocktower or Front Street Municipal parking lots.
Employee parking permit stickers shall be placed by affixing it to the inside windshield on the lower left-hand side (driver's side).
