TOL PR 2016-10-06 Church St parking lot Town of Leesburg News Release For Immediate Release Media Contact: Betsy Arnett, Public Information Officer barnett@leesburgva.gov  703-771-2734 Leesburg Opens New Downtown Public Parking Lot Church Street parking lot adds 44 pay-to-park spaces to the downtown. Leesburg, VA (October 6, 2016) – On Monday, the Town of Leesburg’s new Church Street parking lot, located at the corner of Church and Loudoun streets, opened to the public, helping to ease the shortage of parking options for patrons and employees of downtown businesses. The Church Street parking lot has 44 public spaces, including two handicapped accessible spaces. Parking rates are the same as the on-street metered spaces, $1.50 per hour, but there is no time limit. Rates apply Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Parking is free on weekends, holidays and after 5:00 p.m. on weekdays. Patrons can pay using the lot’s pay station using cash or credit cards, or they can pay with the ParkMobile app on their smartphones. The ParkMobile app charges a service fee; there is no service fee when using the pay station. The Town has leased the Church Street parking lot from Courthouse Square LLC. Previously, the owners leased the lot to Loudoun County for employee parking. Some parking spaces are still reserved for county motor pool vehicles, but the majority of the spaces are now available to the public. In conjunction with opening the new parking lot, the Town added a pedestrian crosswalk at the intersection of Church and Loudoun streets. # # # Mayor David Butler tries out the pay station at the new Church Street parking lot.
