City of Kingston Offers Free 2-Hour Holiday Parking

KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble is pleased to announce that from Saturday, December 11, 2021 to Saturday, January 1, 2022, the City of Kingston will offer free 2-hour holiday parking. Parking in lots and at meters across the City will be free for up to 2 hours.

“To help our residents celebrate the holiday season, Kingston will offer free two-hour parking in the lots and at meters across the City,” said Mayor Noble. “We are opening up the free parking one week earlier than in years past, to encourage all residents who are able to visit our wonderful shops and restaurants. This year in particular, I feel it’s so important to support our local businesses. As always, we hope you will do so safely and follow appropriate Covid recommendations—and I hope the extended free parking helps to bring holiday cheer to you and your family.”

During this time, City parking staff will focus on meter repair and routine maintenance, but will be issuing safety violations such as blocking fire hydrants, parking in handicap spots, double parking, and expired inspections. Vehicle owners must observe all traffic and parking rules and park in legal spots. Regular enforcement of parking meter expiration will resume on January 3, 2022.

Parking permits for 2022 will be available for purchase in the next few weeks. There will be an announcement on the City’s website once they are up for sale. The permit is $100 and permits are valid from January 1, 2022–December 31, 2022.
