Mission and Goals

Code Compliance & Community Relations Division, Parking Compliance works in partnership with the citizens of Nampa and the Downtown Business Association to promote quality of life in the City by effectively enforcing our parking laws and regulations in a fair and consistent manner. Our goal is to educate the public concerning the most common parking violations, maximize the capacity of the existing parking supply through increased turnover, encourage compliance of the City's parking regulations, and to provide sound parking enforcement for the health, safety, and economic vitality of the City.


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. Now know where you can park downtown before you go, by checking out Nampa’s downtown parking map.

Downtown Monthly Leased 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.
