The City Undergoes Downtown Parking Garage Renovations

Parking Garage Reno

The City of Columbia Downtown Parking Garage will undergo renovations beginning January 29, 2024. During the renovation period, which is expected to last 4 months, the garage will be closed. The renovation project is a necessary undertaking to extend the structural integrity of the parking facility by more than a decade. 

Mayor Chaz Molder stated, “I am looking forward to getting these parking garage improvements underway. While it will cause some temporary inconveniences, it will provide long-term stability and longevity for the garage, and is an example of a wise investment in existing downtown parking infrastructure.”

The free parking lot between the garage and the back of City Hall will become a permit-only parking zone that will be monitored by the City's parking enforcement officers Monday-Friday from 7:30 AM – 4:00 PM. The lot will be for those who lease spots in the downtown parking garage, along with the Columbia Police Department. The lot will be available for public use after 4:00 PM on weekdays and all day on weekends. 

The 3-hour parking around downtown will not be enforced during the renovation of the parking garage to help alleviate the temporary change in the parking situation. Along with public parking around downtown, there is also public parking available in the Maury County parking lot (corner of E 7th St. and Woodland St.) near the Downtown Square. 

For questions regarding the parking garage renovations, please call (931) 560-1510.
