Resident Parking Program

To qualify for a resident parking sticker, you must be a resident of Winthrop.  Payment of all fees, fines, parking tickets and taxes, including excise tax, owed to the Town must be up to date.  Vehicles with commercial plates do not qualify for resident parking stickers.  Repair plates, dealer plates, taxis and liveries are considered to be commercial vehicles.  

A LEASED VEHICLE’s registration must indicate that the vehicle is registered in Massachusetts and principally garaged in Winthrop.  

A COMPANY VEHICLE’s registration must indicate that the vehicle is registered in Massachusetts and principally garaged in Winthrop

If you are planning an event and are expecting more overnight parking than is permitted by your visitor permit, you may request consideration.  Consideration simply means that the resident parking restriction will not be enforced on the night of your event.  Consideration requests must be submitted in writing, either by letter, online or fax.  Requests must include the applicant’s name, telephone number, reason for the request, location, dates, and registration numbers for those vehicles for which you are asking consideration.  

Consideration requests must be submitted to the Police Department at least one full business day prior to the dates of consideration and must be approved by the Chief of Police.

Consideration only applies to a waiver of the resident parking sticker.  All other restrictions will continue to be enforced.

In order to apply for a Resident Parking Sticker and/or Visitor Permit, fill out the application and follow the directions on the reverse side of this notice.  If you are a new resident, your insurance company should change the “principal place of garaging” to Winthrop.  Apply early!  Please note:  All stickers will be mailed the first week in June.

Enforcement of residential parking regulations commenced town wide on July 1, 2005.
