Town makes changes to paid parking

Staff reportsThe Truckee Town Council adopted changes to the downtown paid parking district at its Jan. 19 meeting.Changes included: • A free parking lot for downtown employees at the Catholic church parking lot off of Church Street. The lot will be open to employees only on weekdays.• A “smart card” program, which is a pre-paid parking card that offers motorists a 25 percent discount on parking rates. This program will take more than two months to develop, according to town officials.• A “in-car meter” program, which will allow people to purchase personal parking meters that can be left in their vehicles. The program will offer a 25 percent discount on parking rates and the convenience of not having to walk to a parking meter and print out a ticket. The program will also not be operational for more than two months, according to town officials.• The formation of a parking commission. The commission will replace the informal parking committee and review possible changes to the downtown parking area. The nine-member panel will include representatives from all areas of downtown and two at-large community members.Application information for people interested in serving on the commission can be found at
