It Might Cost You Ten Bucks To Park In Downtown El Paso For A Baseball Game – [UPDATE]

El Paso City Council looked at a proposal to triple fees on parking meters on West Franklin street and designate that street as a Baseball Park District during their regular meeting yesterday. What does that mean for you if you park downtown? It means you’ll be paying about as much to see a baseball game as you pay to see a UTEP football or basketball game.

Parking In Downtown El Paso Could Get More Expensive

Right now, parking for downtown meters is 75 cents per hour, Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The changes would raise fees to $2.50 an hour, including Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and be free only on Sundays.  For a 3 – 4 hour baseball game, that would mean about $10 in parking meter fees.  That’s what it costs to park at the Don Haskins and Sun Bowl parking structures for basketball and football games, and about what you pay in any lot near the UTEP campus during game days. The proposed increase is only for meters near the ballpark, not all of downtown.

So, now that you know the facts, what do you think of the proposed increase?
