Parking in Bangor Becoming a Major Headache
Can’t seem to ever find a parking spot in Bangor? You’re not alone.
With construction taking away parking spaces in an already crowded downtown Bangor, The Business and Economic Development Committee are looking for answers. Parking spaces in downtown are minimal, and the Pickering Square Parking Garage has limited hours.
Extending the hours of operation for the parking garage may be a way of elevating the problem. It’s estimated that doing so would increase parking garage budget by $6,000. With extended hours however, the garage could gain more revenue.
Currently the garage closes at 9PM weeknights and 6PM Saturdays. The first two hours of parking are free weekdays, and free on Saturdays.
Another idea is to utilize an automatic pay system.
