Mayor Clarifies Policy about Parking Enforcement during Snow Emergencies

When the City determines parking will be drastically altered or that the paying of meters would cause a possible safety hazard, the City will not issue parking citations for non-payment.

Media Release                      DATE:  December 22, 2016

 

It is the Town of Greenfield’s intent to look out for the best interest of citizens and employees during times of declared snow emergencies and heavy snow removal and build up concerns.

 

Snow emergencies will be declared by the Office of the Mayor, in conjunction with the Department of Public Works and Greenfield Police Department, with notice being made through multiple channels including radio and the Town’s website.

 

On dates and times where the City determines parking will be drastically altered or that the paying of meters would cause a possible safety hazard due to snow berms or ice build ups, the City will not issue parking citations for non-payment in those areas. The Town will announce the lifting of payment regulations, effected locations, and duration on the Town’s website.  The lifting of these regulations only applies to hourly paid spaces at parking meters and marked “pay and display” spaces in town parking lots. Marked “Permit Parking Only” spaces will continue to be only for permit holders from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday-Friday, during snow emergencies. If you have questions on which streets or lots have permit parking, please refer to the parking website (greenfield-ma.gov/parking).

 

Parking Bans will not be lifted and residents should adhere to these bans throughout a Snow Emergency. Should a parking ticket be issued and an individual wishes to appeal the violation, appeal requests can be submitted using the standard ticket appeals process.

 

Thank you for your cooperation. Should additional concerns arise, please contact the Chief of Police by email haighr@greenfieldpd.org or at (413) 773-5411 ext. 1304.
