Enforcement of Gold, Long-Term Meters Resumes September 13
Beginning Monday, September 13, 2021, enforcement of the gold, long-term meters in Carlisle Borough will resume. The gold meters are primarily located on secondary streets such as Bedford, Pitt, Pomfret, Louther, and North Street. These meters have been free of charge since March of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Individuals parking at the gold meters on, and after September 13, must feed the meter or risk receiving a parking violation. The long-term meters are designed for individuals who work downtown or will be visiting the entire day. The meters cost $0.25/hour, with a maximum time limit of 10 hours. These meters only accept quarters and the Passport Parking App.
Parking enforcement of the silver, short-term meters resumed on July 6, 2020. These meters accept credit cards, coins (nickels, dimes, quarters) and the Passport Parking app. The silver meters are designed for quick stays and have a two-hour limit.
When parking downtown, please be aware of the meters covered with red bags, a strategy that was implemented to assist downtown merchants. Reserved specifically for downtown merchants during and post COVID-19, these bagged meters provide curbside pickup and drop-off opportunities for patrons of those businesses. Please avoid parking at these meters unless you are patronizing the business.
Downtown visitors can also find convenient parking at the Pomfret Street Parking Garage, located on West Pomfret Street. The garage rate is $0.75/hour with a maximum of $6/day. The Pomfret Street Garage is a cash-only facility.
Parking meters are enforced Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM until 4:00 PM. Metered parking is free on weekends and Borough holidays.
