Changes to the Resident Parking Program
On September 22, 2020, the Town Council voted to make changes to the resident parking ordinance. Most of these were non-substantive changes to fix typographical errors and fix minor oversights. The major change is that applications are no longer accepted in-person, and there is now a $5.00 fee for permits when applying online. This makes the fee for online applications the same as the fees for other methods. The following is a brief outline of the changes affecting the annual permit renewal process:
- There is a $5.00 fee for all resident parking stickers, including those fulfilled via the online application process.
- Residents applying by mail no longer need to provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
- Residents may apply by mail year round if they are unable to apply online.
- In-person applications are NO LONGER accepted, except in special circumstances by appointment.
The renewal period continues to begin in October, and permits will still be mailed on or about December 1. Seniors age 65 and older and residents holding a valid handicapped parking placard or license plate issued by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles still have no fee for their permits.
If you do not currently have a maroon permit with a printed expiration date of December 31, 2020, and you need a permit immediately, please apply online.
Online and mail-in applications are currently being accepted for both 2020 and 2021 permits. If you need a permit prior to December 1, you need to apply for a 2020 permit (at a reduced fee) and then reapply for a 2021 permit.
Parking permit applications are now available online or you may download an application to apply by mail. Click here to apply.
