Waterfront Parking

NOTICE: UPDATED parking POLICIES & RATES
EFFECTIVE MAY 1, 2021 | CLICK HERE TO READ THE FAQ'S
As of May 1, 2021, full implementation of the Port of Everett’s comprehensive waterfront Parking Management Program will be complete, replacing the existing seasonal parking rate structure implemented back in 2010. The new program balances the diverse parking demands of site users from waterfront visitors and boaters to business patrons and special event attendees, and, provides consistency in parking rates and permit structure site wide. 

The Program provides two (2) hours of free parking in designated Visitor Parking each day, year-round (except in posted Special Event Parking) with pay-to-park thereafter. The first 2-hours free parking benefit extends to Jetty Landing Park, which was historically $3 to park. A variety of convenient, cashless pay options for Visitor and Special Event Parking include web, mobile phone application, text-to-pay, and walk up pay stations in several locations (to be available starting May 1, 2021). Additionally, new long-term parking options have been established for visitors needing to park longer (no parking may exceed 29 days). The Port’s on-site parking operator, LAZ Parking, monitors and enforces all parking zones and types and will be using advanced license plate reader and online pay monitoring technology.

Visitor Parking Rates
   0-2 Hours FREE
   2-4 Hours $2
   4-10 Hours $5
   10-24 Hours $10
   Special Events
   (*For up to 4 hours, may vary based on event)
$5*

Digital parking permits are available for on-site business employees, marina slipholders, marine mobile operators, boat club members, and boat launch pass holders for use in designated lots. Various rules apply to individual user groups, and just as before, if parked outside of designated lot(s), Visitor Parking rates and time limits apply.

Efforts to improve the waterfront parking experience have been underway since 2018, in consultation with previous and current parking management operators Diamond Parking and LAZ Parking, as well as industry parking expert, Walker Parking. Program implementation was phased over a three-year period while the Port worked to better understand the historical use, parking habits and counts, and contractual obligations of all site parking, as well as to incorporate community and stakeholder input. This led to optimizing parking zones, clarifying parking signage, improving ADA parking facilities, and facilitating convenient pay options to best support the needs of all site users.
