Winter Parking Ban & Weather-related Emergency Parking
Snow emergencies will be declared by the Office of the Mayor, in conjunction with the Department of Public Works and the Greenfield Police Department, with notice being made through multiple channels including radio and tv, social media, and this website. You can also sign up for Greenfield alerts here.
- During a declared snow emergency, no on-street parking is allowed anywhere in the City during the specified times. Parking is only allowed in the marked spaces in the Chapman / Davis parking lot and the Olive Street Garage during the hours of the emergency.
- The Chapman / Davis Street lot has a designated area for overnight parking, but cars must be moved for snow plowing between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m.
- The Olive Street Parking Garage gates will be opened and parking is free until the end of the declaration. Cars should park in the interior, not on the exposed top deck, during a snow emergency.
- THE CITY WILL HAVE ALL VEHICLES IN VIOLATION OF THE EMERGENCY PARKING BAN TOWED AT THE OWNER'S EXPENSE.
PARKING ENFORCEMENT AFTER SNOW EMERGENCIES: When the City determines parking will be drastically altered or that paying at meters would cause a possible safety hazard due to snow piles or ice build-ups, the City will not issue parking citations for non-payment in those areas. The City will announce the lifting of payment regulations, effected locations, and duration on this website. The lifting of these regulations only applies to hourly paid spaces at parking meters and marked “pay-and-display” spaces in City 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.
Please note: Greenfield no longer has a general winter parking ban that restricts parking to only one side of the street. The only special winter parking restrictions are during snow emergencies.
