The City of Rome Downtown Development Authority is working to develop parking strategies to better enhance visitor experience in the downtown district.
Downtown Rome has changed quite a bit over the past few years, with its eclectic mix of restaurants, shops, offices, and residences. In the face of increasing demand for the most sought-after parking spaces in downtown, the City of Rome and the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) want to make parking a non-factor in your experience.
We encourage those that are visiting the heart of downtown for a short time to utilize the very convenient street parking. The long-term parking or off-street parking options will enable customers and visitors to spend more time downtown without having to move their vehicle. We look forward to seeing you in Downtown!
