Application forms are now available for those interested in applying for a reserved parking space in either the Museum Place garage or South Harbor garage. There are 30 spaces available in the Museum Place garage and 20 available in the South Harbor garage. Spaces are $1,500 per year in both garages.
Those who currently have a reserved parking space in either garage that expires August 31, 2017, and would like to seek another reserved space for September 1 must apply. Current reserved space permits do not carry over automatically. There is no guarantee or preference for current reserved space permit holders.
Applications are due back by noon on August 11. There is a limit of one application per person and only one space will be available per application. If there are more applications than available spaces in either garage, the City will hold a lottery to randomly draw the successful applicants. The lottery, if necessary, will be held at noon on August 14 at City Hall in the City Council chambers. Those who receive a space must make payment and sign the reserved space agreement by August 31 in order to receive their permit.
The reserved space permits are good through August 31, 2018. Applications are available on the City Collector’s website at http://www.salem.com/collectors-office/pages/downloadable-forms and in hard copy in the Collector’s Office at 93 Washington Street in Salem.
