Good Deed: Municipality Converts Meters to Curbside Pickup Spaces

IPMI Blog post March 17 2020To support businesses in town, the Lexington, Ky., Parking Authority launched an effort to convert several paid parking spaces into curbside pickup-only spaces, for use by people picking up food and items from restaurants and merchants.

“While supplies last, the LPA will make every effort to create these opportunities for some level of business to continue under these current circumstances,” said Gary A. Means, CAPP, executive director of the authority.

Pickup-only spaces have had their meters covered with a blue LPA bag. Merchants can request spaces near their businesses be converted by emailing or calling the authority.
