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.
