Effective immediately the City of Parkersburg is transitioning downtown parking to 15 minute free parking in the areas outlined below:

Market Street 8th-3rd
7th Street Juliana -Market

This measure is being implemented to provide easier access to downtown Parkersburg’s eateries and other businesses that have been or may be affected by COVID-19 guidelines recommendations and orders related to gatherings and congregation.

We hope this action will allow all downtown businesses to maintain limited operations within the confines of current restrictions in an efficient and effective manner.The city will reevaluate as necessary but for now this change will remain in effect indefinitely.
