Program Goal

To reduce traffic congestion and double parking on and around Main Street, and improve safety and access.

Program Update

City Council strives to increase safety, reduce congestion, and promote transit while maintaining access to Main Street businesses. After evaluation and stakeholder input, the Drop, Load, and Staging (DLS) program is being updated to operate more efficiently.

The DLS program resumed on November 20, 2020. The program is intended to be a year-round program, which has been supported by stakeholders for consistency. The program may be suspended for events and other unforeseen circumstances.

Beginning Friday, November 20, at 5:00 p.m.:

  • Paid DLS zones along the east side of Main Street will be consolidated into two zones at 7th Street (738 Main), and from the former Tupelo to Cafe Terigo (508 Main Street to 424 Main Street).
  • All paid DLS zones will remain as free 15-minute public parking before 5:00 p.m.
  • No permit required drop and load zones will remain on Swede Alley, in Bob Wells Plaza, in the Brew Pub Lot, and at the 9th Street turnaround.

DLS Permit Areas

All For-Hire/Ground Transportation vehicles (including taxis, rideshares, and lodging shuttles, etc.) wishing to drop off and pick up on Main Street between the hours of 5:00 p.m.-12:00 a.m., must have a paid DLS permit. Zones are identified with signage.

Before 5:00 p.m., the zones will be available for 15-minute parking for all users, no permit required. From 5:00 p.m.-12:00 a.m., the zones will be drop and load only unless otherwise marked for staging. All vehicles using the premium curbside space during these hours will be required to have a DLS permit issued by the City.
