Summit is providing complimentary parking during the holiday season in Downtown Summit.
The parking lots on DeForest Avenue and the bottom level of the Tier Garage (Lots 1, 2, 3, and 4) will serve the public for shopper parking and the city is giving complimentary parking until January, 2013.
The City is asking to limit your parking time to three hours in these parking lots to allow for sufficient turnover of these parking spaces. Downtown employees should utilize long-term lots and not take up valuable shopper spaces.
Summit is also enticing visitors and shoppers downtown for the holiday season with allowing a little extra time at 90-minute street meters. Customers will receive a Holiday Courtesy Card instead of a ticket!
Look for Summit Ambassadors! A new exciting downtown addition is the Summit Ambassadors decked in white shirts and maroon vests. In the near future, they will be donning Santa hats for a festive feel. Ask them where to park, how to find a certain gift you’re looking for or where a renowned restaurant is. They are here to help!
The city hopes that many will shop local and support Summit businesses during the holiday season.
The City of Summit wishes everyone a happy and healthy holiday season.
