The City’s holiday season parking meter policy remains in effect through Monday, December 31, 2018. To support holiday shopping from Noon to 6:00 p.m. each weekday, the City will not require payment at parking meters in the Downtown Business District (defined as the area bounded by 2ndStreet to 12thStreet, and by French Street to Washington Street) and in the Riverfront Business District. Official holidays such as Christmas Day and New Year’s Day remain free all day. A two-hour parking limit will remain in effect, however.

Exceptions to this temporary parking policy involve streets designated as “tow-away zones,” where no stopping is allowed at those meters at the times posted. All applicable traffic regulations, other than those requiring payment at parking meters, will be enforced, including time-limited parking (two-hour or one-hour parking as designated by signage) or overtime parking, bus stops, fire hydrants, double-parking and parking too close to pedestrian crosswalks, etc.
