The City of Rockville has temporarily designated about 40 on-street parking spaces in Town Square as 15-minute curbside pick-up spots.

The free 15-minute parking will be available on spaces along Maryland and Gibbs streets, between East Middle Lane and Beall Avenue.

Many customers are avoiding public spaces, such as restaurants, due to concerns of infection by a spread of coronavirus in crowded areas. Customers will be able to use the spaces to park and quickly pick up food orders.

Paid meter parking will be required for stays longer than the free 15 minutes.
