The Downtown Business Association is contracting with LAZ Parking once again to provide valet service on Avenida Del Mar. Valet parking will be available from 6 p.m. to about midnight on Friday and Saturday nights, and if it is successful, the valet could be extended to Thursdays. The valet service started on July 8. Cars can pull into the bus area in front of Avila’s El Ranchito. This week the valet will run Thursday and Friday.

The company will look at usage numbers to later determine whether to continue the program for additional weeks, said Eric Smith, director of business development, for LAZ parking.

The dates parking will not take place are during Ocean Festival, July 16 and 17; during the San Clemente Fiesta, Aug. 7; and during the Arts and Craft Show, Aug. 20 and 21. The valet service costs $5 but could increase.
