Bellflower Rises to the Next Level With Grand Opening of New Parking Structure
City Meets the Needs of the Business Community By Providing Free Parking in Downtown
Soaring 55-ft above Bellflower Boulevard at Mayne Street on two acres of land, the Downtown Bellflower parking structure was ceremoniously opened with an official ribbon-cutting event on May 13, 2020. The new 4-level parking structure was completed over the past 18 months and features 278 free parking spaces, new landscaping, electric vehicle charging stations and a smart park system.
The new parking guidance system will utilize smart-sensor technology and cameras to display available parking stalls upon entry. This feature is convenient and time-saving for visitors shopping downtown and attending events at The Mayne Events Center and SteelCraft, both located across the street from the structure.
Mayor Juan Garza cut the ribbon along with his fellow Council Members while observing the Safer-at-Home guidance. The ceremony was short and attended by Bellflower City Council and a handful of City staff.
“Despite COVID-19, we are proud to open this wonderful and historic addition to our Downtown,” said Garza. “The idea to build a parking structure began in 2017, and now it is finally a reality. Although vehicle traffic is light at the moment, this beautiful facility represents an investment in our City’s economic and architectural future. Bellflower is well-positioned and ready to continue supporting our economic resurgence post-COVID-19.”
