Parking rates are set to increase on the Capitol Campus, so the state Department of Enterprise Services — the agency that manages the property — wants to hear from you.
The 30-day comment period began Monday (May 15).
Here are the proposed increases, which take effect July 1:
▪ Employee use, general zoned: Increases to $35 per month from $25 per month.
▪ Employee use, reserved: Increases to $49 per month from $35 per month.
▪ Agency reserved: Increases to $105 per month from $75 per month.
▪ Visitor only: Increases to $2 per hour from $1.50 per hour.
The state says it has to increase rates to recover the cost of Capitol Campus operating and capital expenses. A portion of the parking fees also go to the state Department of Transportation’s commute trip reduction program.
