Borough Suspends Downtown Parking Meter Enforcement & Opens Pomfret Street Parking Garage to Free Public Parking
Beginning Wednesday, March 18, enforcement of both short-term silver and long-term gold meters located in downtown Carlisle is suspended until further notice. Residents and visitors parking at a metered space may do so free of charge. Convenient off-street parking is available at the Pomfret Street Parking Garage, which will be free until further notice. Located at 35 West Pomfret Street, the Garage features security cameras and is open 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
Street sweeping remains on schedule in order to promote public health and safety. Therefore, residential parking enforcement remains in effect. Residents and visitors are strongly encouraged to observe the “No Parking” signage on the designated days and times in order to provide street sweeping access.
In keeping with the CDC’s recommendations on social distancing, we encourage residents to utilize the Borough’s website, www.carlislepa.org, for conducting Borough business including utility bills and parking ticket payments. A drop-off box for payments is also located outside of Borough Hall. General inquiries can also be made via the website or by calling 717-249-4422. For individuals without phone or website access, Town Hall at 53 West South Street is currently open with limited access. All business is conducted at the main floor lobby/reception area.
The Borough of Carlisle continues to remind residents to follow the prescribed guidelines of washing hands often and for a duration of at least 20 seconds, cleaning frequently touched surfaces with disinfectant household cleaners, avoiding contact with people who are sick, practicing proper cough and sneeze etiquette, using hand sanitizer, and refraining from touching your eyes, nose, and face area. These practices help reduce the spread of contagious diseases like COVID-19.
Look for additional updates via press releases and on the Borough of Carlisle’s website at www.carlislepa.org.
Note: Borough trash bags may be purchased at participating grocery stores, pharmacies or Borough Hall.
