ADA Parking Accommodations

Parking is Free for patrons with a valid placard or accessible registration plate. 

The Parking Division has designated 60 on-street and 41 off-street accessible parking spaces. These spaces are centrally located in the downtown area to provide convenient access to businesses within proximity to each space. Persons who display accessible registration plates or valid placards may park at any parking meter or in any city facility for free.

Please Note: 
Persons with accessible registration plates or valid placards may not park in access aisles or restricted zones (i.e., fire, yellow, loading, police only, etc.).

All accessible parking spaces are designated by a conspicuously posted sign bearing the international symbol of accessibility. 

Fines For Parking In A Designated accessible Parking Space/access Aisle.

The Uniform Traffic Ordinance Section 12-9-9 A. states, "Any person who violates this section shall be subject to a fine of not less than two hundred fifty dollars ($250) or no more than five hundred dollars ($500) [per violation]. Failure to properly display a parking placard or special registration plate issued under Section 66-3-16 NMSA 1978 is not a defense against a charge of violation of Subsection A of this section (66-7-352.5 NMSA 1978)."
