Despite confusion, holiday parking is free in downtown Annapolis

November 29, 2013|By Pamela Wood, The Baltimore Sun

For years, Annapolis has had a holiday tradition of offering free parking downtown, signified by bags placed over the parking meters.

But with new digital meters, there's no need for the bags. And that's leaving some drivers confused, said Rhonda Wardlaw, a spokeswoman for the city.

"The red bags won't be there, but the two hours free parking will be," Wardlaw said.

The meters have been reprogrammed to show that drivers will get two hours free.

The two hours of free parking is in effect through Jan. 1 on Main Street, Francis Street, West Street, Maryland Avenue, Prince George Street, City Dock, Market Space and at the Donner Lot on Compromise Street.

The 30-minute meters at the base of Main Street will offer 30 minutes of free parking.
