As the weather warms up, more visitors are expected to fill the Carmel Arts & Design District.

As it was stated in a previous Current in Carmel article, business owners have often expressed concerns about not enough parking for the customers in the Arts District.

As a result, the Carmel Police Department is reiterating its parking permit program that was started in 2009. Applications forms were sent out to businesses and officers stopped by and handed them out.

Permits expire annually on June 30 and require a valid driver’s license. These permits will be used in any lot with the Arts District logo on them. The permits do not allow people to park in three-hour parking signs and 15-minute loading/unloading zone signs without the Arts District logo.

Most three-hour parking restrictions are only from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, but employees are still encouraged to obtain a permit even if they normally work after 5 p.m.

Fraudulent use of the permits can result in towing the vehicles, fines and/or arrest.

For questions or to obtain a permit form, call 571-2520.
