Roswell sets parking fees for new East Alley spaces

The East Alley project in Roswell is set to be completed soon, with a ribbon cutting taking place on Thursday at 11 a.m.

City leaders hope that East Alley, nestled in Roswell’s historic downtown district, turns into a shopping and dining destination. But the folks visiting those shops and restaurants need somewhere to park, right?

The city constructed an 18-space lot for the project, and earlier this month, city leaders approved a parking fee schedule for those spaces. The vote was unanimous on April 9, but councilman Marcelo Zapata was not present at the meeting.

Here is the fee schedule:

Before 6 p.m.

• First two hours – free

• Two to three hours - $4

• Three to four hours - $6

• Four to five hours - $8

• More than five hours - $16

The prices are mostly the same after 6 p.m., except parkers will be charged $1 per-hour during the first two hours.

The city will install a solar-powered payment kiosk at the lot which requires the entry of the parker’s license plate number. Payment can be made with a credit or debit card only. The estimated cost of the kiosk is $9,700.
