In some parts of downtown Ellensburg it is becoming increasingly hard to find an available parking space. As the city grows and development increases, the demand for on-street parking spaces is projected to grow further.
Additionally, the city is improving opportunities for walking, cycling and riding transit, resulting in a more vibrant downtown. View the city's Parking Study performed in January 2019.
