LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Lexington Parking Authority (LPA) announced today that it will convert several paid parking spaces into “Curbside Pick-Up Only” spaces in an effort to support local restaurants and merchants in the downtown and Chevy Chase areas as the community comes together to navigate the effects of COVID-19.
Restaurants and merchants are encouraged to reach out to the LEXPARK customer service center at (859) 231-7275 or at [email protected] to request a nearby meter to be converted for this use.
“While supplies last, the LPA will make every effort to create these opportunities for some level of business to continue under these current circumstances,” said Gary A. Means, CAPP executive director.
Customer’s utilizing this service should look for a meter covered with the blue LPA bag (image attached) or a sign stating Curbside Pick-Up Only.
The goal of the Parking Authority, which was created by the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Council in 2006, is to provide, maintain and operate adequate, high-quality, customer-focused public parking and encourage economic growth.
The LFCPA, which maintains four garages and 1,270 parking meters, receives no taxpayer funding.
