Vision
A friendly, progressive community where; the public is educated on our parking laws and ordinances; where all the parking needs of Nampa residents, businesses and visitors are met; and where there is a safe and efficient movement of traffic, emergency acess and turnover of parking spaces in our downtown, residential and commercial areas.

Nampa's Downtown Historic District
Nampa’s downtown core is unique in the fact that most buildings span from property line to property line with no onsite parking. Parking in the downtown is provided on-street and in city-owned parking lots.

The City of Nampa recognizes the importance of utilizing the on-street parking spaces for other needs, such as construction staging areas, special events, and/or outdoor dining due to the lack of off-street parking, and narrower sidewalks. That is why we have developed an ordinance and resolution that addresses these types of activities within our Downtown Historic District.
 

Outdoor Dining & Special Events-
When an area of on-street parking is proposed to be used as an area for outdoor dining or to hold a special event, a temporary parking use permit for outdoor dining / special event is required.

Construction Activity-
When an area of on-street parking is being used as a staging or delivery area, or being used for the placement of dumpsters or equipment during construction, a temporary parking use permit for construction is required.

Downtown Customer Parking
Some areas within our City that have specific limited-duration parking are in our downtown area. Our downtown has a combination of leased only parking stalls, two-hour parking, and a $2 pay-by-day parking lot.

Downtown Monthly Parking
Monthly-leased parking is available in our downtown for business owners, employees, and visitors. Monthly-leased parking gives frequent visitors or employees of downtown the opportunity to have unlimited parking privileges during the month, for a single affordable lease rate. Parking Lots offer 12-month, 6-month and month-to-month terms. To sign up for leased parking, contact Nampa City Parking Services at (208) 468-5705 or by email.


Monthly Parking (Residential)
In addition, some residential neighborhoods within the City of Nampa have time-limited or residential permit parking. Please pay close attention to the signage around you as the signs will help delineate the type of parking that exists.
