04 December 2023- Shopping local isn’t just for Small Business Saturday because parking in downtown Chambersburg, Greencastle, and Waynesboro at metered spaces is free until the end of Christmas.
In an effort to help businesses squeeze out a few extra dollars and attract shoppers who may be concerned about getting ticketed, multiple boroughs in Franklin County have suspended enforcement for overtime parking rules through Christmas and sometimes the end of the calendar year. This only applies to on-street parking meters and does not apply to parking lots unless their respective meters are bagged.
Enforcement is also set to continue for all other parking rules like loading zones, handicap accessible spaces, and otherwise posted locations.
Even though a bag is not placed on meters in Chambersburg, the on-street parking has been confirmed by borough officials to be free. Chambersburg Borough Manager Jeffrey Stonehill also pointed out to News Talk 1037FM that meters are always free on weekends, nighttime, and on holidays.
