The City of Excelsior implemented a new smart parking system in 2021. A total of 19 solar powered, wireless parking pay stations will replace the existing meters adjacent to The Commons and on the boat docks. Pay for parking also be extends south on Lake Street and on Excelsior Boulevard.
The street pay stations are setup for pay by plate parking where the user must enter their license plate number during the transaction. At the boat docks, the user will input their space number instead of the license number. A receipt is provided as proof of payment after each transaction. Parking payments are enforced with wireless devices so there is no need to place the receipt on the vehicle's dashboard. The pay stations do not accept cash or coins.
In addition, the City has implemented a new paid parking system on Second Street between Center Street and Morse Avenue and Third Street between Center Street and Mill Street. Those parking in these areas must download the Premium Parking App (App store for iPhones or Google Play Store for Android devices). The Premium Parking App can also be used in areas along Lake Street and Excelsior Boulevard instead of using a Pay Station.
Two- hour complimentary parking will still be available on Water Street and in the surface parking lots.
