Beginning August 15, metered on-street parking in the 18b Las Vegas Arts District will be free Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
All on-street meters in the Arts District will be free in an area bounded by Charleston Boulevard to the north, Commerce Street to the west, Third Street on the east and Oakey Boulevard to the south.
The program is designed to provide free parking during typical lunch hours, but if one wants to stay longer than 1 p.m., the Flowbird app allows additional time to be purchased on the meter remotely. To use Flowbird, just remember your license plate number and the name of the street where you parked.
This program is being instituted on a trial basis and the city will evaluate its success before deciding when it will end.
