The following information was provided by the Watertown Police Department:
Watertown Chief of Police Michael P. Lawn has announced the 2018-2019 Winter Parking Ban dates.
Effective Nov. 26, 2018 and continuing to April 1, 2019 the Winter Parking Ban will be in effect and strictly enforced.
The regulation reads in part; “No vehicle may remain on any public way for more than one hour between the hours of 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. all days of the week.” For residents who lack sufficient off-street parking, the Town allows for temporary parking at any municipal parking lot and other locations noted:
• The police station at 552 Main St. (visitor’s parking lot only)
• Any public school parking lot • Marion Road parking lot at Victory Field
• O’Connell Park, (lot at the corner of Boylston Street and Mt. Auburn Street)
Please note that these locations may be used free of charge, however vehicles may only use available spaces after 7 p.m. and must be moved/removed by 7 a.m. the following day. Vehicles must be removed from school property no later than 6 a.m. Violators may be towed. Please remember that parking your vehicle upon any sidewalk is prohibited.
Your cooperation in keeping the streets clear of overnight parking and your sidewalks clear of snow and ice will make for safer driving and walking conditions and at the same time, allow the opportunity for the Public Works Department to perform necessary street cleaning and maintenance.
