North Adams Installs New Parking Meters

The new digital meters take quarters only.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — New parking meters have been installed in downtown North Adams over the past few nights.

The digital meters take 25 cents (quarters only) an hour for a maximum of two hours, up from the previous 10 cents. Vehicles must be moved at least five parking spaces after two hours to avoid a parking violation.

Long-term meters are 25 cents for 2 1/2 hours, with a maximum of 10 hours.

The meters will be in operation from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily except Sundays and holidays.

Parking Officer Mary Ann King said the new inserts in the meters were being put in at night to make it easier for motorists.

Meters were first installed on Eagle and Marshall streets and will be placed on Main, Ashland and American Legion Drive. They will be put in on the north side of Main Street when the new poles are put in to accommodate the diagonal parking.

The parking meter changes had been discussed for nearly two years. The 10 cent charge had been in place for years and parts for the aging meters were becoming more difficult to obtain. The City Council in August approved spending $19,236.24 from the Parking Meter Reserve Account to cover the purchase of new digital meters.
