Some parking rates in Downtown Boise could increase soon

The Capital City Development Corp., which operates or owns a number of Downtown Boise parking garages, may again raise some rates.

The agency set a public hearing date for March to discuss the proposed rates. It didn’t fully outline the changes during a Monday board meeting.

It did say, however, that it wasn’t likely going to change the “first hour free” or $3/hour policies currently in place for short-term parking.

Instead, Director of Parking & Mobility Max Clark said they could increase the monthly parking rates and/or maximum daily rates in some facilities.

“We hope to manage demand and garage waitlists by increasing monthly rates in all garages,” he said.

The additional dollars could go toward maintenance and rehab for some of the structures, he said.

CCDC last raised rates in 2017.

The board also said it would take a deeper look at parking rates and demand during an upcoming retreat.

The public hearing will take place at CCDC’s board meeting on March 9th at noon. If approved, the new rates could start in May.
