Recently, an interactive App (Concord Downtown NC) for Downtown Concord was released by the Concord Downtown Development Corporation (CDDC). You can read more about this App in one of our past articles, "Downtown Concord Launches a New App for the District."

This App was developed in hopes of bringing tourists into the area, as well as garnering more locals to participate in downtown activities. 

So far, both have been successful. However, parking is becoming an increasing issue as a result, but plans are underway to develop more parking. Surface parking lots 3 and 4 will make way for construction of a new County parking deck in Downtown Concord, but this means that the city has needed to get creative. 

One of the solutions to this problem is in the App itself. According to a January press release, "The latest version of the Concord Downtown NC app includes an interactive parking feature that has real time lot accessibility." 

This App also provides parking information in advance for those planning on coming into town. It assists you in finding a spot to park according to the place you're visiting. "Users can toggle
between the option of Weekday and Nights/Weekends to determine what parking will be
available when they arrive," the release continues. 

Local businesses have gotten together to help as well, offering parking in their lots after hours. They're joined in the efforts as "Parking Partners" with the city. 

The Concord Downtown NC app is available now on Google Play and the Apple App Store. Learn more at concorddowntown.com.
