Check on Unpaid Parking Tickets Before New System Starts
On April 1, Greeley’s new parking system will start identifying vehicles with unpaid Greeley parking tickets using license plate recognition.
Officials encourage drivers to check on and pay old tickets before the new system starts.
Greeley’s top 20 repeat parking offenders have more than $26,000 in outstanding parking tickets. When people chronically break or disobey the parking rules, they make the downtown parking situation worse for everyone.
This new and improved system helps create more responsibility for downtown parking users. As a part of that accountability, vehicles with parking tickets that have gone unpaid for more than 60 days will be immobilized until parking tickets are resolved.
That makes now — before these changes go into effect — a great time to get those old parking tickets paid. Anyone can find out if his or her vehicle has outstanding parking tickets or start the payment process by calling 970-350-9230 or stopping by City Center South Municipal Court in person at 1001 11th Avenue. Make sure to have the license plate number ready before calling or stopping by.
In addition to improving parking accountability starting April 1, these new improvements will:
- Maintain two-hour free parking during weekdays and free, no-limit parking for evenings, weekends, and holidays.
- Add a pay-to-stay option so visitors can choose to leave their car in place longer if they wish.
- Implement a program that encourages more parking availability in high-traffic and centrally-located downtown areas.
- Reduce enforcement hours in the evening by an hour, stopping at 5 p.m. instead of 6 p.m.
