    Residents encouraged to review snow parking ban information, sign up for alerts

    By signing up for Portsmouth’s CodeRED alerts, you can receive immediate alerts by text and/or email when there is an advanced warning for a snow emergency, a declared parking ban and when a parking ban has been terminated. When an advanced warning for a parking ban is declared, Portsmouth residents can park at the Hanover and Foundry Place garages at a special flat fee rate. From the time there is an advanced warning up until two hours after a parking ban has been terminated, it costs $5 to park at Hanover, and $3 to park at Foundry Place.

    Foundry Place Garage Grand Opening: Free Parking on Halloween

    The City is opening their second parking garage at 100 Foundry Place on Halloween day, Wednesday, October 31st. To celebrate the grand opening, Mayor Blalock will join City staff and those involved in the project for a ribbon cutting ceremony at 8 a.m. After the ceremony, the garage gates will open to the public at 10 a.m., and will be free of cost to drivers for the entire day.

    Is there public art at this facility?

    The Foundry Place Garage, in accordance with chapter 1, Article XVII. Section 1.1702 Percent for arts, includes $150,000 in the project budget to solicit artists for artwork to be included as part of the project. The Foundry Place Project Planning Committee received six proposals as finalists for the Percent for Art public art at the new Garage. These proposals represented a wide range of conceptual ideas, materials, and uses for the space inside and outside of the new garage. Two projects were chosen, the "Etched Glass Concept" and the "Hammer Concept," detailed here. These projects will continue to be installed after the opening of the garage, and will be celebrated at a later date.

    Are there electric vehicle charging stations at Foundry Place?

    ​​​​​​​Yes, there will be six charging stations at Foundry Garage; four plugs on the first level and two plugs on the second level.

    How can I pay to park at Foundry Place?

    Take your ticket with you when you park. There will be pay stations located in the elevator bay (cash and credit cards accepted) and in the west stairwell near Rock Street (credit card only). Patrons will pay at the paystation upon returning to the garage, and prior to retrieving their vehicle. Once payment is made, patrons will retrieve their vehicle and proceed to the exit station, insert their paid ticket, and the gate will allow exit. There is also the ability to pay at the exit stations (credit card only).

    ​​​​​​​The EZPark system does not communicate with garage control systems, and so EZPark cannot be used to pay for parking at the Foundry Garage. The City is looking to provide a city-wide mobile payment solution in the future.

    How can I obtain a monthly parking pass at Foundry Place?

    If you are interested in obtaining a monthly parking pass at the new garage, please do the following at your earliest convenience:

    Current Hanover pass holders and new customers should contact the Parking Clerk’s office at City Hall in person or by telephone at 603-610-7229 to put down a deposit of the first month’s payment to secure your pass.

    Interested parties can also secure a Foundry account by stopping by the Parking Attendant Booth at the Hanover Parking Garage. You will need to provide contact information and a check deposit to secure your space.
