SUMMARY:

                                          

On November 29, 2007, the City and the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) entered into an Interlocal Agreement with the Pensacola Downtown Improvement Board (DIB) for the creation of a comprehensive downtown parking strategy for the centralized and efficient management of downtown parking facilities. As referenced in Section 15. B. of the Interlocal Agreement with the CRA, after the fifth annual anniversary of the initial term of the Interlocal Agreement, the CRA may upon the affirmative vote of City Council, terminate this Agreement without cause upon one hundred and twenty (120) days prior written notice to the DIB. An item recommending that City Council provide notice to terminate the Agreement and resume parking management by the City will be presented to City Council during its May 28, 2020 meeting.

 

The Parking Management District (PMD) historically managed 6,300 total spaces, with 4,500 of those spaces within the downtown core with private spaces totaling roughly 14,700. Boundary changes to the managed area reduced parking by 2,400 to a revised total of 3,900 within the downtown core. The PMD managed area includes the area bounded on the westernmost side of DeVilliers St., on the north by the northernmost side of Wright St. and the CSX Railroad tracks, on the east by the easternmost side of Ninth Ave., and on the south by the shoreline of Pensacola Bay.

The Downtown Improvement Board (DIB) cannot enforce or regulate parking activities and enforcement outside the established district. The Mayor with City Council and CRA approval would like to expand the PMD boundaries to match those boundaries of the City of Pensacola and bring the PMD under City management effective October 1, 2020. It is anticipated that taking this action will be budget neutral to the City and CRA.
