Downtown Parking PlanThe City of Turlock is in the process of developing a parking plan for the Downtown area. This plan will address current and future parking demand for downtown Turlock. The goal of the plan is to ensure parking does not hinder the continued success of existing businesses nor limit the future growth of the downtown. The City will be holding public meetings to get input from the community on any current parking issues in the downtown area and how they would like to see parking develop in the future.
