Winter Parking Information
The following information applies to all streets and municipal lots within the Town of Winthrop with the exception of Winthrop Shore Drive.  For snow related information on this and other DCR parkways, please visit the DCR website at

Effective each year from December 15th to April 1st, the winter parking regulations will be in effect in the town.

Upon announcement by the United States Weather Bureau or forecast in the public newspaper or
on radio or television of an expected or impending snowstorm, all automobiles and motor vehicles must
be removed from the town streets upon penalty of being tagged and fined $40.00 for violation of town parking
regulations and/or being towed away at the expense of the owner, operator or responsible person, with
the exception of the streets listed at the bottom of this page.

Motor vehicles must be removed from these excepted streets immediately upon cessation of snow
during daylight hours or, in the case of storm events occurring during the nighttime hours, by eight a.m.
in order not to impede snow removal operations. Violators will be subject to the same penalty as above.

Persons responsible for parking automobiles must keep informed at all times of snowstorm forecasts in
order that vehicles may be properly removed from town streets.

Town bylaw prohibits anyone from obstructing the public street or sidewalk without a permit from the
town council. Therefore, any chairs, barrels, traffic cones or other objects placed in the public way to
"reserve" parking spaces will be removed and disposed of immediately.

All towed vehicles are tagged and ticketed for violating town parking regulations. If your vehicle is
towed and the ticket is lost during this process, you should contact the parking clerk to determine
additional fines owed.

Municipal Parking Lots

When a snow ban is effective, municipal parking lots can be used by residents and visitors of Winthrop.  Vehicles must be removed from those lots before 7AM after that snow event so Public Works may clean the lot, sand and/or remove snow.  Illegally parked vehicles will be subject to a fine and/or towed.
