New Downtown Valet service
In an effort to correct all of the parking issues in Downtown Auburn, the City of Auburn has signed for a valet service to take place downtown. Below is the released statement from the City of Auburn's website.
Public valet parking will begin on Friday, Aug. 18. Valet services will be free this weekend, in accordance with the free parking break between Auburn University semesters, but will be $1 per hour beginning Monday. Services will be offered seven days a week with varying hours to accommodate brunch, lunch and dinner in the downtown area. View the valet parking release at auburnalabama.org for more details, including hours of operation.
New Downtown parking tool
Many citizens have expressed their frustrations with parking in Downtown Auburn. A common complaint is that driving around looking for a spot has become a routine to most. To help those in this situation, the City of Auburn has added a new tool on their new site — a parking map. The map uses sensors to detect which spots are open, and which are not. You can find the map on the City of Auburn's new website here.
