City Hall employee parking will remain as is
Tuesday, June 16, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
Yesterday, Transportation Department Director Robert Spillar announced that, after receiving feedback from employees and City Council staff, “City Hall employees will be provided a reserved parking area and all employees will continue to enjoy free parking at City Hall at this time.” According to a memo sent by Spillar to Council and Mayor Steve Adler, the current configuration will change, and plans now include “a designated area for employees on the P3 level of the garage during business hours. The spaces will be reserved for Austin City Hall employees only; employees visiting from other facilities will not be permitted to park in this area. The Austin Transportation Department estimates that there will be roughly 250 reserved spaces, based on the typical employee usage. This should be plenty of parking for City Hall employees. Additionally, the 32 spaces currently reserved for Austin City Council staff will be maintained on P1. There will be no modification to parking where Austin City Council members and the City Manager’s Office park on the basement level of the garage.” The reversal of the entrance and exit to the garage will move forward as planned.
