Park Plymouth News & Announcements
PGDC Reaches Settlement with MEGRYCO re: Bradford Inn Redevelopment
Multi-space Pay Stations Replace Parking Meters on Water Street
Park Plymouth has removed a total of 78 parking meters along the harbor-side of Water Street and replaced them with five (5) multi-space pay stations. The area will remain a 4-hour parking area, and parkers will now be able to pay for their parking with coins, bills (not available w/meters), credit cards and their smart phones (Passport); parkers will also now be able to get receipts for their parking (also not available w/meters). Park Plymouth will benefit from lower annual maintenance expenses and the ability to take advantage of recent advances in parking technology.
By removing the meters and poles, there is now a more pleasing (less cluttered) visual view of the harbor for residents and tourists visiting the waterfront. The new pay stations have also been located and spaced in a manner that will enhance pedestrian safety in the area by directing those who park along this curb towards the pedestrian crosswalks.
Free Parking Now Available at Nathaniel Morton Elementary School
During the summer after the school year ends, residents and visitors to the area will be able to park there at all times throughout the week. During the school year, the parking lot will be available for public parking during the afternoon/evenings on weekdays, all day on Saturday and Sunday, and on holidays when the school is not in session.
No Parking signs will be posted and a notice placed on the Park Plymouth website should it ever become necessary to restrict parking at this location on select days during the year.
