If you’re planning to attend the Mumford & Sons Gentlemen of the Road festival that begins Aug. 29, pay attention to local rules on parking or risk a fine or tow, the city’s business development organization warned Tuesday night.
Troy Main Street, Inc., said many public and private lots will be by permit only and specifically reserved for residents, downtown businesses or volunteers. Signage at each lot will identify the permit group and hours/days of operation.
Vehicles parked in lots without the necessary displayed permit will be subject to fines and towing. Some streets will be limited to permit-only for downtown residents.
Residents of the following streets and blocks can visit Troy Main Street’s office, in the 405 Building, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily to pick up on-street parking passes. Proof of residency is required. Alternative times for pick-up can be arranged by calling (937) 339-5455:
