Town officials want to know what people living, working and visiting Watertown think about parking in two major commercial areas in town.
The Town is creating a Parking Management Plan for Watertown’s two major business districts, Watertown Square and Coolidge Square. To collect information, town officials have created an online survey.
The Plan will take a fresh look at the existing parking supply, demand for parking, and look for creative ways to satisfy parking needs, according to the Town’s website.
Some of the areas that the Parking Management Plan will cover are:
- Improved meter technology
- Consistent and easy to understand regulations
- Options for enforcement
- Changes that could better manage parking and meet ongoing demand
- Opportunities for shared parking
- Other ways to support healthy and successful commercial centers

Town officials will also be holding two open houses about parking. The first will be about Coolidge Square on Jan. 23, 2019 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., and the second will cover Watertown Square, which will be held on Jan. 24, 2019 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Both open houses will be held in the Watertown Savings Bank Room at the Watertown Free Public Library, 123 Main St.
