Effective July 5, 2011, a rate increase will take effect for all day parking. Standard parking spaces will increase from $2.50 per day to $3.00 per day. Prime parking spaces will increase from $4.00 per day to $5.00 per day. Prime spaces are located in Lot "A" (Train Station Lot) nearest the station. Hourly spaces will remain at their current rate of $0.50 per hour. The Pay Stations in Lot "A" will now accept $5 bills, but patrons are advised that, as in the past, NO CHANGE WILL BE PROVIDED for any payments put in any of the Pay Stations.
Additionally, effective July 5, 2011 the maximum hourly rate time limit for parking in Lots "E" & "H" will be increased from 2 hours maximum to 3 hours maximum.
The Town of Dover Parking Utility will also be receiving bids on July 20th for a number of parking lot improvements including paving, striping, and renumbering of spaces in all lots except Lot "D". Lot "D" will be disrupted in the coming year with the construction of the new Prospect Street Bridge, so improvements to that lot will be held off until completion of that bridge project.
Pay Station enclosures will be installed in Lots "A" & "B" to provide protection from the weather when paying.
In addition, a new trash enclosure and decorative fencing will be installed in Lot "A". Work is expected to begin in mid-August and should be completed by the end of September. Those lots under construction will be closed for short periods of time during construction, but parking in nearby lots will be made available to minimize the inconvenience during those periods.
Watch for signage in the lots for closure dates and alternate parking locations in other Municipal Lots.
