The City of Biddeford previously announced that it would be implementing a new parking program on November 1 that includes the use of parking permits in downtown municipal parking lots. However, the City was notified by the manufacturer of its parking kiosks that the shipment of equipment was unexpectedly delayed. The kiosks are now expected to arrive in mid-November, and the parking program will begin on December 1.
All members of Biddeford’s downtown community are advised to take notice of posted time limits when parking on Main Street and downtown side streets. Parking enforcement officers began to ticket cars that violate new signage on November 1. Vehicles that are in violation of these new signs may receive a warning for their first violation and will be ticketed for their second violation. Vehicles will not receive a warning for violating longstanding parking time limits.
