As of January 2021
As you may recall, the Port of Everett conducted a nationwide solicitation for parking management services in 2019 and selected LAZ Parking to take over its site-wide parking management program. LAZ replaced the Port’s 2019 interim parking management firm Diamond Parking effective June 1, 2020. LAZ Parking is a nationally renowned parking firm with extensive experience in parking services for large-scale destinations and events, and they bring opportunities to implement new technologies and efficiencies to deliver a quality waterfront parking program that better balances the parking needs of all site uses, including slipholders and marine uses, on-site commercial businesses and restaurants, waterfront visitors and special events.
While initial communications had indicated parking policy updates and new technologies were expected to be implemented in 2020, including license plate reader (LPR) technology, digital parking permits and visitor parking fees, given the COVID-19 pandemic all major updates to the program were pushed out for phased implementation in 2021.
NEW! DIGITAL PARKING PERMITS
In January 2021, marina slipholders began applying for their new digital parking permit(s) via LAZ Parking, which effective May 1, will replace all physical parking permits. Slipholders will be issued up to two (2) digital parking permits per slip that will be managed via LAZ Parking’s License Plate Reader technology. As a new benefit to digital parking permits, moorage holders can now provide license plate numbers for as many vehicles as they would like (so long as they the vehicle(s) are registered in their name or the name of a household dependent). Two of these registered vehicles can be parked within your designated marina parking permit zone at one time. Use of your digital parking permit(s) are limited to the marina basin in which your vessel is registered (South Docks, Central Docks or North Docks Parking).
PLEASE NOTE: Your 2019/2020 hard copy permits will remain valid through April 30, 2021 as we make this transition. We ask that you continue to display Your 2019/2020 hard copy permit on your vehicle through this date. If you have discarded it, please contact LAZ Parking to make a note on your account to avoid ticketing your vehicle.

Please Note: If you had already provided license plate information to the Marina Office in 2020, you may already be registered for your permit. Marina slipholder digital parking permits are provided to slipholders registered on the moorage contract or dependents of the registerd slipholder who are living in the same household as the moorage contract holder. Your digital permit will automatically expire upon moorage termination and no action will be required of the slipholder.
SLIPHOLDER LONG-TERM PARKING
If you intend to park at the marina while you are on a trip that extends past 96 hours, you are eligible to register for long-term parking.
Slipholders are allowed long-term parking for 29 days in a calendar year in marina reserve parking areas at no additional cost.
This complimentary long-term parking slipholder benefit is in addition to the free 96-hour parking in your designated marina reserve parking area. If you have additional long-term parking intervals that extend past 29 days in a calendar year, you will need to park in the Visitor Parking as a long-term parker and pay applicable parking fee(s). We do this to assure everyone has access to the reserved parking that comes as a benefit of being a slipholder.
