After Labor Day 2020 (September 7), the City of Annapolis will resume charging for parking at City metered parking spaces. Alongside the hourly fees, the City will also resume ticketing for expired meters. The City currently issues tickets for parking longer than the two-hour limit. The parking charges for metered spaces in downtown will resume on September 8, 2020.

The parking fees and fines were suspended when the COVID-19 pandemic began and the State of Emergency was issued in March of 2020. When the City began operating Recovery Zones and local businesses were beginning to ramp up operations, the parking fees and fine suspensions were continued in order to help lure patrons back to the downtown shopping district.

Nearby garages will remain free during Recovery Zone events (Gott’s Court garage from 4PM to Midnight, Wednesday to Sunday; Hillman Garage Thursday & Friday from 4PM to Midnight, Saturday from 12PM to Midnight, Sunday from 10AM to Midnight). Additionally, Calvert Street Garage (aka State Garage) remains free on weekdays from 6 pm to 6 am and on weekends from 6 pm Friday to 6 am Monday. The Whitmore Garage remains free on Sundays from 4 am until 4 pm.

As an incentive for downtown to reorient to the parking garages, a limited number of garage parking validations were distributed to downtown businesses this week.
