LEXPARK meters won’t charge during COVID-19 outbreak


As of March 18, Lexington Parking Authority (LPA) will not charge LexPark on-street meters until Friday, April 10. They will re-evaluate if it needs to last further.

There is a two hour limit that will be enforced.

LEXPARKSeveral paid parking spaces downtown have already been turned into “Curbside Pick-Up ONLY” spaces with a 15-minut limit.

“This is a community crisis and we are part of this community. We stand ready to assist if there is anything we can do to help the businesses affected by this crisis,” said LPA Chair James H. Frazier, III. 

The goal for this free parking downtown is to provide, maintain, and operate adequate, high-quality, customer-focused public parking to hopefully encourage economic growth during this difficult time.

LexPark has also converted several paid parking spaces into “Curbside Pick-Up ONLY” spaces. These spots will be marked by blue bags. Restaurants and merchants are encouraged to reach out to the LEXPARK customer service center at 859-231-7275 or at info@lexpark.org to request a nearby meter to be converted for this use.
