Greenfield Begins Implementing Downtown Parking Study Recommendations
GREENFIELD – The City of Greenfield Department of Public Works and Community and Economic Development Department are beginning to implement recommendations made from the 2023 Downtown Greenfield Parking Study. The Greenfield DPW has made the following initial changes:
- Signage on Prospect Avenue, Prospect Street, Congress Street, and Park Street has been updated and clarified to only allow parked vehicles displaying resident parking permits. Vehicles with employee (paid) parking permits are no longer allowed in these spaces. Previous signage was inconsistently marked as to which types of permits were allowed. Residents in these neighborhoods may acquire a free resident parking permit from the Treasurer/Collector's Office (currently two per household).
- Resident permit signage will be removed on sections of Hope Street, Franklin Street, and Church Street. The parking in these spaces will now be unrestricted, free parking.
- Employee permit signage will be removed on the south side of Church Street. The parking in these spaces will now be unrestricted, free parking.
These initial changes follow the recommendations from the parking study to 1) make consistent signage in the downtown area and 2) create free parking spaces in the more remote areas of downtown. Additionally, residents in these dense neighborhoods will now have clearly marked spaces to park their vehicles.
The city is currently working on the next set of changes based on the parking study recommendations and looks forward to announcing them in the near future.
