Annapolis Holiday Parking

This holiday season, downtown Annapolis will be as festive and beautiful as ever. There will be lights galore, and for the three nights of Midnight Madness (December 1, 8 and 15), Downtown Annapolis Partnership and the businesses have organized carolers, hot cocoa, and selfie opportunities to capture those magical holiday memories.

Here are tips on downtown parking and transit options throughout the holiday season.

DOWNTOWN METERED AND RESIDENTIAL PARKING:

Throughout the Hillman Garage rebuild, we have instituted parking changes. Some of these updates are in place to protect on-street parking for residents – like migrating District I and District II to paid parking through ParkMobile (two-hour limit). For best results, download the ParkMobile app ahead of time.

Of course, any resident with a sticker does not have to pay and has no time limit.

Other changes include upgrading downtown’s old parking meters to parking kiosks that service multiple spaces. On-street metered parking can now be paid with coins, credit/debit cards, or through ParkMobile. As new kiosks are activated, older dual-head meters, many inoperable, are removed.

FREE HOLIDAY PARKING (NON-RESIDENT/VISITOR):

Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley has again approved free holiday parking to encourage visitors to shop, dine, and stay in downtown. The program offers three hours of free parking at metered spaces. The three-hour limit will be enforced, so if you expect your stay to go longer, please use garage parking further up West Street and take the free downtown shuttle.

VOUCHERS FOR GOTT’S GARAGE (CLOSEST GARAGE TO DOWNTOWN):

As an additional incentive, the City of Annapolis is distributing tens of thousands of free parking validations for Gott’s Garage to retail, restaurant and service businesses in the immediate Hillman Garage user area. This area includes Maryland Avenue and State Circle, Compromise and Dock Streets, Market Space, Duke of Gloucester, Compromise and Main Streets, and small connectors in between.

To use the validation, enter at Gott’s and take a ticket. While shopping or dining downtown, ask for parking validation. Each yellow validation is worth two hours of free parking. When you exit the garage, feed the white ticket, followed by the yellow validation. Validations can be used at both the Gott’s pay station kiosks or exit gates.

PARK PLACE, GRADUATE HOTEL + OTHER CITY GARAGES (ONE PARK PLACE / TAKE FREE MAGENTA SHUTTLE):

Park at Park Place (One Park Place) for $1 for the first hour/$3 for two hours. Take the downtown magenta shuttle, which runs in a continuous loop approximately every five minutes from Park Place to Main Street and back. Download the “TransLoc” app and track the shuttle in real time.

Park free at City garages (Gott’s Court, Knighton, Park Place) on Sunday mornings (enter after 6 a.m. and exit before 2 p.m.).

STATE GARAGES FREE USE:

The State Garage (19 St. John’s Street) offers free parking from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday and all day on weekends. Whitmore Garage (37 Clay Street) offers free parking on Sundays.

EARN FREE PARKING WITH PARK SHOP & DINE:

PARK, SHOP & DINE: We encourage downtown businesses to participate in the “Park, Shop & Dine” Program by purchasing deeply discounted customer parking validations (.55¢ an hour, minimum validations 100) valid at Gott’s, Knighton, and Park Place garages.

Visitors to Annapolis can enjoy up to four hours of parking free in downtown Annapolis! Park in any of the city-owned garages (Noah Hillman, Gotts Court, Knighton or Park Place), then look for the “Earn Free Parking” sign at your downtown business, or ask if they participate in the Park Shop & Dine. Participating businesses can provide you with a coupon to cover one hour of free parking (most require in-store purchase). You can collect up to four.

If you plan to use more than one Park Shop & Dine validation per visit, do not use the Pay-On-Foot machine. Please proceed to the exit where you will insert the ticket received at entry, followed by up to four validations. Any remaining balance will need to be paid with a credit card. If you plan to use only one Park Shop & Dine validation, you may use either the Pay-On-Foot machine or you may pay at exit.

Business owners – Do your customers like free parking? Of course, they do. Make their visit even by better offering Park & Shop rewards. Get your validation tickets at reduced rates by contacting SP+, parking management firm for the City of Annapolis, at (443) 648-3087 or via through this contact form. You may also visit the SP+ office, located at 60 West Street, Suite 106, from 8 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday.

Residential Permits

APPLY FOR A RESIDENTIAL PERMIT:

Residential Parking Permits allow Annapolis residents to park their vehicles on-street in one of the five (5) designated Special Parking Districts where they reside (See Map). The program is governed by the Annapolis City Code of Ordinances Chapter 12.32– Special Residential Parking Districts

To receive a residential parking permit, applicants must submit an up-to-date Maryland vehicle registration, per Maryland MVA rules. Residential parking permits are valid for one year (July 1 to June 30).

The purpose of the City’s Resident Parking regulation is to maximize parking availability for residents, while discouraging long-term parking on residential streets near or within commercial zones.

All permit holders must provide required residency documentation with each new annual permit.

Annual permits may be purchased online or in person.

Setup, with some limitations on downtown parking, will begin Wednesday, September 28. Breakdown will continue until close of business on October 20. The changeover between shows will take place Oct. 9 through 12.

Conduit Street to Close Once Per Week for Garage Construction

Beginning the week of August 30, 2022, Conduit Street in downtown Annapolis will close  one day a week between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m. to facilitate the ingress/egress of concrete trucks for the rebuild of the downtown Hillman garage. The weekly closure will happen between the dates of August 30, 2022 and January 30, 2023. 

Contractors rebuilding the garage require this closure to quickly move concrete mixing trucks in and out of the jobsite along Gorman Street in downtown Annapolis. The City has asked the contractor to avoid the concrete work on Mondays, which conflicts with refuse and recycling pickups, and Fridays. 

The road closure during morning rush hour, coupled with the number of vehicles on these roads during the drop-off times for Annapolis Elementary and St. Mary’s schools, may cause significant delays. We ask residents and visitors to downtown to please be alert to the dates of work and consider sharing rides and allowing themselves plenty of time. 

NOTIFICATION: The City of Annapolis will post an alert to the home page of the City website with 24 hours notice (or more) in advance of each specific work day closure. Sign up to receive email notifications of these alerts at https://www.annapolis.gov/alertcenter.aspx and selecting “Home Page Alerts.”

Currently, the first closure is anticipated for either Wednesday, Aug. 31 or Thursday, Sept. 1, depending on a variety of construction factors, including inclement weather. Please check the City website for updates: www.Annapolis.gov

City Manager Michael Mallinoff thanks the public for their patience during construction. “The new downtown garage will be an amazing asset, with easier parking, more spaces, EV chargers, working elevators and more,” he said. “We have to endure some pain but the benefits will be great.” 

For more details on the new garage, visit: www.AccessAnnapolis.com.

Independence Day Parking Tips

Annapolis will celebrate Independence Day with a parade and fireworks on Monday, July 4, 2022. For complete event details, including parade times and locations, please visit https://www.annapolis.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=1476.

Here are your “need to know” Independence Day parking and traffic tips:

On July 4th, Main Street and the Spa Creek Bridge (from Eastport to downtown) will be closed to traffic beginning at 6 p.m. and remain closed until the conclusion of the fireworks, at approximately 10 p.m.  Parking in downtown will be crowded. In addition, close-in parking may make it more difficult for out-of-towners to get out of town after the celebration.

Please be aware that the closer you get to downtown the harder it will be to park and the more difficulty you will have getting out of town after the celebration. For up-to-date parking information, visit www.AccessAnnapolis.com.

Park in Knighton Garage or Park Place Garage and take the free downtown shuttle to the top of Main Street. Remember that Hillman Garage is closed for rebuilding until June 2023. Gotts, Whitmore and Calvert Street garages will be open. Please be alert to on-street parking signage; some areas in downtown have changed to resident-only (permit parking) and paid hourly parking through the ParkMobile app.

The downtown shuttle will run from 8 a.m. to midnight on July 4, 2022.

Due to heavy traffic and large attendance, local garages may fill up early. Therefore, the City will also provide free shuttle service from the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium (Gate 5) to Lawyers Mall from approximately 4:30 p.m. to midnight. Parking at Navy Stadium will be $10 per vehicle on Monday, July 4, 2022.

Residents with a current permit must purchase their new permit before July 1, 2022 to ensure their vehicle’s permit is valid for this new registration year. After July, residents may purchase permits on a prorated basis throughout the year. RPP stickers will be sent to residents via U.S. mail soon after purchase. There are no changes to permit prices this year and all major credit and debit cards are accepted. Proof of residency is required.

[Purchase Your Permit]

This year, the purchasing portal features a new interface designed to simplify the purchasing experience. Applicants will need to create a new account, and then simply follow the prompts to complete their purchase.

While online registration is the easiest way to get a permit, residents may also visit the Annapolis Parking office at 60 West Street, Suite 106 or call Annapolis Parking at (443) 648-3087 for assistance.

To protect residents’ personal information, the purchasing portal on www.AnnapolisParking.com utilizes encrypted SSL technology to protect customer data during the purchasing process. Residents with questions are encouraged to contact Annapolis Parking at (443) 648-3087 or annapolisparking@spplus.com.

On Street Parking Districts 1 & 2

Changes are coming to on-street parking in the downtown core (in Parking Districts 1 and 2, see map below). ParkMobile signs are being placed to indicate that on-street parking in these residential zones is moving to paid two-hour parking. The signs will be in place without enforcement for a two-week grace period. Enforcement will begin on Monday, May 16, 2022.

Residents with parking stickers (Districts 1 & 2) will retain free parking privileges. Please contact SP+ to ensure that your parking stickers are up-to-date.

The City of Annapolis instituted this change because over many months and numerous community meetings, residents and resident association leaders pressed for prioritizing downtown parking specifically for residents during the rebuild of the Hillman Garage. Paid two-hour parking on residential streets incentivizes non-residents to migrate their parking needs to surface lots and garages.

USING PARK MOBILE: Non-residents are encouraged to download the ParkMobile app (Android/Apple). After the app has been downloaded, add your vehicle tag, payment method and allow “location enabled services” to automatically determine ParkMobile parking zone data. Parking can also be paid by texting “PARK” to 77223 or calling 877-727-5758 (or 877 PARK 758). DETAILS & HOURS: In Districts 1 & 2, parking will be free to downtown residents with a specific permit and limited to TWO-HOUR PAID PARKING for all others from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Both parking districts will be permit parking ONLY from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. with the exception of some holidays and events as determined by the City.

WHAT ABOUT GUESTS? Guest passes will continue to be issued to residents, up to 10 per month, per household plus 25 annually. Contact www.AnnapolisParking.com for details.

HILLMAN GARAGE: For more information on the 14-month rebuild of Hillman, visit www.AccessAnnapolis.com.

The City’s goal is to make sure there are parking spaces available for our residents. Throughout the rebuild of Hillman, the City will continue to assess resident needs and make changes as warranted.
