Historic Preservation Building

Message from the City

As we get ready for the busy summer season, you will notice some changes to parking in Downtown Louisville. In an effort to create additional short-term parking spaces closer to businesses, the City is changing 74 spaces from all-day to 2-hour starting July 1, 2018. These spots are located in the Main Street parking lot (612 Main Street), a portion of the Library Underground Garage and on-street spaces on Front Street from Pine to Elm. While these spots will not be available for all-day parking, there are many other locations that remain available, including the new DELO lot, which offers 68 spaces for all-day use.

Code Enforcement will be monitoring the new 2-hour spaces to make sure that parking time limits are being followed. If you would like to report a parking issue or have any questions, please contact Code Enforcement at 303.666.8634.
