IPS single-space perking meters

UPDATED May 15: All single-space parking meters in Arlington Center are being replaced, town of Arlington officials say.

During this time, these meters will not require payment. This does not include municipal lots.

Enforcement of time limits in all zones will continue.

The updated date for replacement of these meters, and no payment, had been April 15, but that date recently has been extended to July 1, a May 15 town news release says. 

ACMi reports ...:

In early February, Town Manager Sandy Pooler wrote that all 143 meters in the center were to be replaced. That breaks down to 80 dual meters and 43 single meters.

Affected are meters on Mass. Ave. between Franklin and Jason/Mill streets; Broadway between Franklin and Webster streets; Broadway Plaza at Alton Street between Broadway and Belton; Medford Street; Court Street; and Peg Spengler Way near the Unitarian Church.

The four-hour time limit in each zone as well as the posted hours for the commercial vehicle loading zone on Alton Street will continue to be enforced. 

This policy will not apply to the municipal lots -- Russell Common, Railroad Avenue and Library Lot -- where vouchers are purchased from a multispace kiosk and displayed on a driver’s dashboard.
