While Natick has had its festive little red hoodies on parking meters for a couple of weeks now, Wellesley will begin waiving parking meter fees on Dec. 20-Jan. 2 to encourage people to shop locally. Wellesley officials figure the town will lose about $10K in meter revenue over the span, but that will be more than offset by a boost for downtown businesses and shoppers.
Went to Needham yesterday. No charge for nice parking space on street. Had lunch, went to CVS there instead of risking a ticket here.
I’m sure the town authorities know what they are doing…

As a customer at wellesley shops, I welcome this perk for the Holiday Season. This definitely lets me relax a bit while I schmooze ‘n shop along Central Street. Nice
