    The College Main Parking Garage, located at 309 College Main Ave., is your best bet for affordable, long-term parking and is open 24 hours every day. It’s a great way to park once and walk to multiple destinations. Unlike the on-street, single-space meters which have time limits, you can park in the garage as long as you need. The city offers monthly, six-month, and annual parking garage contracts. Long-term parking contracts provide the best value and can be purchased online. The garage only accepts Visa, MasterCard and Discover credit/debit cards. It does not accept American Express or any form of cash/coin.

    Northgate represents a unique mix of retail establishments, bars, restaurants, residential, and places of worship located close together, creating nearly around-the-clock activity. Given this unique mix of uses and the urban nature of Northgate, deliveries can pose a real challenge. Whether you work for a delivery company, a distributor, or a Northgate merchant, here are some tips for making your job a little easier:

    • There are several designated loading zones in Northgate. Please pay close attention to the signage associated with the loading zones on Patricia, First, and Boyett Streets as well as the loading zone on University Drive. There is also a loading zone in the surface parking lot. Note that some of these areas also serve as public parking spaces for part of the day. Again, please pay close attention to the signage!

    • The city also allows the fire lane located south of the surface lot to be used as loading zones as long as the vehicle is occupied at all times. Unattended vehicles in the fire lane will receive a citation.

    • When utilizing the fire lanes as a loading zone, delivery vehicles should avoid blocking other vehicles.

    • Vehicles operated by sales personnel are not allowed in loading zones. There are numerous free two-hour parking spaces in Northgate. (see map for location) Please utilize these spaces or park in a metered space when making sales calls.

    • Loading and unloading should be done as quickly as possible.

    • If possible, try to avoid large deliveries during peak times - deliveries made during the evening rush hours and during lunch time will tie up customer traffic unnecessarily.

    • Parking, loading, or unloading in a designated bike lane is not permitted. Bike lanes must remain clear of vehicles at all times.

    • Even if you are loading and unloading, if you park in a metered space, you must pay the meter.
