Residents can check the parking ban status by calling the snow emergency line (978) 412-8705.
During a snow or ice event requiring snow plow operations, all on street parking is banned even for permitted vehicles. Vehicles must be moved into available off-street parking which includes municipal lots at Hammett Street, Elm Street and the MBTA train lot. People can park there until the streets are cleared, these lots are on a first come basis.
Once the streets are plowed, it’s time to leave the lots so they can be worked on. The notification to remove your vehicle from one of the municipal maintained lots will be indicated by a blue light on a utility pole in the lot. When lit, the blue light indicates parking in that lot is prohibited until snow removal is finished. Vehicle owners should regularly check the status of the lot they parked in to ensure they are not in violation of that lot. There is a $50 fine for failing to move from the lot when the blue lights are on and the vehicle will be towed at the owners’ expense.
