In hopes of encouraging shoppers to visit downtown during the holidays, the city of Bellingham is launching the Holiday Lunch Parking Program. Beginning Monday, Nov. 30, downtown shoppers can enjoy free parking in metered spaces between the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Although parking is free during these hours, drivers are asked to park responsibly by observing the time limit posted on the meter. Shoppers wishing to stay longer are encouraged to “walk a little and save a lot” by parking at one of the 8-hour meters for just $.25 an hour. A poster with a map showing the long-term parking locations is posted on the city Web site and will be displayed at downtown businesses.
The Holiday Lunch Parking Program will end Thursday, Dec. 31, 2009. For more information, contact Parking Services at 778-7780.
