With more downtown businesses reopening to employees who require parking, the City of Portsmouth DPW Park/Portsmouth Division offers a reminder that the Downtown Workforce Parking Program, available year-round.
Qualified employees of downtown Portsmouth businesses can park in the Foundry Place Garage for only $3 per parking session, rather than the per-hour parking rate.
To benefit, an employee of a Downtown Portsmouth business must show a photo ID and current proof of paycheck issued by a downtown business and submit the application form (below) in person at the Foundry Parking Garage office. Each employee is eligible to buy up to 20 parking stickers per month.
“Each session is good for 10 hours, so parking is a one-and-done for your entire shift,” said Benjamin Fletcher, City of Portsmouth Director of Parking. “This means no more running out to move your car, or paying the higher fees associated with the new Stay & Pay pricing on Portsmouth streets and parking lots.” Additionally, the Foundry Place Garage offers covered parking (no more scraping windshields or brushing off snow) and clean, heated public restrooms on site.
For more information, call 603.766.2630 or visit the Parking Services Offices located right at the Foundry Garage at 100 Foundry Place.
