TEMPORARY CURBSIDE PICKUP ZONES INSTALLED
Wilson Downtown Development, in partnership with the City of Wilson public services department, set up Temporary Curbside Pickup Zones within the Municipal Service District in Historic Downtown Wilson to help connect storefront businesses and their customers during the COVID-19 response. Most of the zones are placed in areas where there is currently on-street parking to support quick stops for takeout services.
Two parking spaces adjacent to each eating/drinking establishment are reserved for 5-minute curbside pick-up. As of 3/27/20, establishments with more urgent needs were provided immediate signage. Signage and reserved spaces for all downtown restaurants and drinking establishments should be in place by April 1.

The Wilson Farmers & Artisan Market is tentatively set to begin on May 2. Given the fluid situation, there is a good possibility that this may need to change. Follow Wilson Farmers & Artisan Market on Facebook for updates.
