New 15-minute parking in Canyon's Downtown Square

Over the past several years, the City of Canyon Downtown Square has gotten quite busy and anyone who has been to the square has probably noticed that finding a parking place can be difficult.

The City of Canyon has received concerns from both merchants and customers about short term parking needs, and are trying to address those concerns.

Starting the week after Thanksgiving, new parking signs will be placed around the square. These signs will indicate "15 Minute Parking THIS SPACE ONLY." That being said, if you plan on staying an extended period of time, longer than 15-minutes, these parking spaces will not be for you.

The City of Canyon has placed the signs in locations that will meet the needs of the community.

Signs have been placed in close proximity to the Cake Company, Johnston’s Hardware, Modern Cleaners and Thompson’s Gift Shop. According to the city, they noticed customers normally only spend minutes in these various stores.

The Canyon Police Department asks for voluntary compliance in regards to these new parking regulations.

For those planning to stay in the square longer than 15-minutes and are in need of a place to park, there is a new parking lot located on the south side of the square behind the shops on 5th Avenue.

Anyone with questions about the signs are encouraged to call the Chief of Police at the Canyon Police Department, Dale Davis.
