New Parking Meter Covers are On the Way

Draft of Meter Cover Design

Thanks to an A&E District Technical Assistance grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, handsome parking meter covers will soon replace the paper notices the police use to warn the public when parking is banned for special events. Artist Barbara Slocum has designed two styles of canvas meter covers. One design will replace the worn green canvas meter covers currently used around Fountain Park during the Farmers Market. The other will be used for festivals and other special events that require parking bans and street closures. We expect to have the covers back from the Wisconsin-based fabricator by mid November.
