|The City of Bloomington is pleased to announce Parking Garage Access Improvements at all three city-owned parking decks located in Downtown Bloomington.|
Improvements will include technology upgrades featuring automated entry and exit stations, security cameras, safety signage, and electronic pay stations for customer safety and convenience. It is important that security is kept as tight as possible in areas such as this to ensure customer safety at all times not just personally but for their cars too. Installing an alarm system in various sections can help monitor the areas that need maximum coverage and will be discussed.
GENERAL OPERATIONS INSTRUCTIONS:
Monthly Parking Customers will be issued a new access pass, used to both enter and exit the garages. The proximity card must be held within a few inches of the sensors to activate the new gates.
