Vote "YES" to the parking garage at 4th and 4th in Naples, Florida


Naples’ 5th Avenue South has served as the heart and soul of Naples for over 100 years. It’s a nationally-recognized destination for vacationers, the place where businesses prosper, and the gathering spot for the community. 

Over the years, the 5th Avenue South Business Improvement District (BID) has maintained this status through carefully monitoring the needs of the business owners who call the Avenue home and the visitors who treasure it.  The issue that continues to plague both parties is parking – or the lack thereof.  Business owners are frustrated because patrons who can’t find parking are leaving and residents and visitors are annoyed because of the congestion created by those searching.   

You have the opportunity to change this by signing this petition to support a parking garage at 4th and 4th before August 14th.

By voting YES to the construction of a parking garage at 4th Street South and 4th Avenue South – something that has been intended since the 1994 master plan for 5th Avenue South – you will create more parking to alleviate overflow parking in the residential neighborhoods in and around downtown Naples and for special events and during season. 

A new, well-designed, aesthetically-pleasing garage would not only add critical parking spots, it will also act as a physical buffer between the commercial street and the residential neighborhood.

This is an important vote that is over 20 years in the making. We urge you to make the right decision and help 5th Avenue South remain one of the top destinations in the country by providing adequate parking within convenient walking distances to our merchants, restaurants, and services. 

Please sign this petition to support a parking garage at 4th and 4th before August 14th.
