Parking with Howard County Tourism

NEW Parking in Historic Ellicott City 101 New rules and regulations in effect as of February 4, 2013. Rules are in effect 10am til 6pm seven (7) days a week. Main Street and Maryland Avenue (In front of the B & O Museum & The Phoenix Emporium) are now paid spots! Fee is $1.00 for 1 hour and there is a limit of 2 hours at these locations – you can not park more than two hours. Lot A on Oella Avenue just past the Trolley Stop is completely free with no time restrictions. Lot B just this side of the river on the right as you come into town from Catonsville is 50¢ an hour with NO limit. Lot C just passed the red caboose on Maryland Avenue is 50¢ an hour with no time limit. Lot D behind the Welcome Center – front part with yellow lines is paid at 50¢ an hour with NO time limit. Back part with white lines is free. Lot E behind the Micro Brewery is paid at 50¢ an hour with NO time limit. Lot F behind the log cabin off of Ellicott Mills Drive is completely free with no time restrictions. Parking along Ellicott Mills Drive is completely free with no time restrictions. There are a total of twelve (12) Meter Kiosks in town - eight (8) along Main Street, one on Maryland Avenue right at Main Street by the Phoenix Emporium, one on Lot E and two on Lot D, one at the entrance to Classic Interiors & Su Casa along Forrest Street and one immediately behind the Welcome Center at the entry to Lot D. This may be hard to believe but all the information one needs is available on the Meter Kiosk itself or by pressing the buttons on the Meter. Meters accept coins (quarters, dimes, nickels) and VISA, MasterCard and Discover. The meters do not accept American Express or dollar bills.

Change is available at the Welcome Center You will not receive anything to put on your dashboard – the system is electronic and knows that you have paid! You must note your space number. You can pay for any parking space at any Meter Kiosk. You can add time to any parking space from any Meter Kiosk. You can also check how much time is left at your paid space by entering your number at any Meter Kiosk. If you are trying to pay for a space and the Meter Kiosk you are at is not working, go to another Meter Kiosk and pay there. An out of order meter does not excuse you from paying for your space. In order for residents and/or shop owners to make “quick” stops to run in and run out and to allow parkers to get to a Meter Kiosk and pay, there is a fifteen (15) minute grace period at each paid spot. Parking can be found on a Free downloadable phone app called Parker by Streetline.
