Greenfield parking ban update

GREENFIELD — The town’s public works director says an update to Greenfield’s winter parking ban prohibits overnight parking in the municipal lot that abuts the American Legion building off Wells Street.

Arthur Baker said people should also understand that between now and April 1, parking is never allowed on the east or south side of any Greenfield street.

Baker said that people are not allowed to park on any side of any street when a storm is on its way or is already in progress.

“People need to stay off of our streets during snowstorms, so that we can get them cleared quickly and safely,” said Baker.

Parking is allowed on both sides of Main and Federal streets, as well as Bank Row and in metered spots throughout town, except between 1 and 6 a.m. throughout the winter. During those hours, on-street parking is not allowed anywhere in town, said Baker.

Also, all municipal parking lots may be used during the day and evening hours. The only lots where overnight parking is allowed are the Chapman-Davis Street lot (look for the sign designating where in that lot) and the upper portion of the Hope Street lot. He said cars must leave those two lots between 8 and 10 a.m. each day so that the town’s public works department can plow and maintain them.

“Following these rules will make everyone’s life a little easier this winter,” said Baker.
