In order to support local business during COVID-19 restrictions, City of Spokane is reserving on-street parking in metered areas that allow citizens and delivery drivers to park for free for 10 minutes to pick up to-go orders.
Watch for the bright yellow signs on parking meters that identify those free spaces designed to encourage and facilitate the adjustments local restaurants and retailers are having to make during this time. Over 700 placards are being deployed in the on-street metered parking area in the core of the City today.
“It is a delicate balance between taking drastic social distancing measures and supporting local businesses. We hope the public will take advantage of the opportunity to #OrderUpSpokane,” says Mayor Nadine Woodward.
Businesses that do not have yellow placards near their locations in the next day can request placards by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
