Retail Parking:

  • All parking south of the Gateway Garage (between the Gateway Garage and Skip Bertman Drive) is reserved as retail visitor space. Highlighted in yellow below, they are the Gateway South Lot - Lot 109 and Gateway Central Lot - Lot 110.  Resident parking restrictions are listed on the lot entrance sign.

  • Visitors shopping at the Gateway Center retail area are allowed to park in the retail spaces for up to one hour. Cars remaining in a retail parking space for more than one hour will be ticketed. Once the restaurant opens, a process will be put in place to allow additional parking time for restaurant customers.
