Where you can park, pay and free parking – in Picton

New ‘pay and display’ parking meter in downtown Picton will continue to collect donations for Food for Learning’s ‘Feed the Meter’ campaign this month.

The municipality has installed 22 pay and display parking stations in the downtown to replace 74 single parking meters. The machines are active, and all money deposited will help provide nutritional meals and snacks to local school children.

Parking enforcement will resume March 1, 2018.

“Pay stations will reduce street congestion and improve snow removal, making it easier for pedestrians to get around,” said PEC Mayor Robert Quaiff. “Furthermore, the stations will improve customer service with drivers having more payment options.”

Street parking is available along Picton Main Street between Bridge Street and Chapel Street, as well as on Elizabeth Street, King Street, and Ross Street for $1 per hour, with a two-hour maximum stay. Parking is also available in the municipal lot on Market Lane for .50 per hour.

Pay and Display parking stations are located approximately 20 meters apart. In addition to coins, the machines accept credit cards and non-PIN debit cards, as well as payment through mobile devices. Payment instructions are posted on each parking station.

“Parking spaces closest to downtown businesses are at a premium, especially during the busy summer months,” Quaiff said. “With the two-hour limit, we want to encourage parking circulation and give as many people as possible the opportunity to park in these spaces.”

Short-term, on-street parking is complemented by nearby free parking in municipal lots on King Street and Mary Street. The King Street lot also offers a high-capacity charging station for electric vehicles.

In addition to the existing designated accessible parking spaces, accessible permit holders can park in any space free of charge.

    Why have pay and display machines not been purchased and installed in Bloomfield and Wellington? Lost revenue for the County.
