Established in 2011, the Parking Enterprise Fund is set up to receive fees outside of the City of Omaha general fund. Its purpose is to improve downtown parking through beautification projects, infrastructure improvements and streetscaping. These enhancements contribute to the vitality of the Old Market, encourage walking and promote safety. Since city law prohibits the parking division to make significant profits, parking fees (in excess of operational costs) will go into the Fund and support the Downtown Business District.
