Winter Parking Ban 2016 – 2017

Watertown Chief of Police Michael P. Lawn has announced the 2016-2017 Winter Parking Ban dates.

Effective November 28, 2016 and continuing to April 1, 2017 the Winter Parking Ban will be in effect and strictly enforced. The regulation reads in part; “No vehicle may remain on any public way for more than one hour between the hours of 1AM and 6AM all days of the week”.

For residents who lack sufficient off-street parking, the Town allows for temporary parking at any municipal parking lot and other locations noted:


  • The police station at 552 Main Street (visitor’s parking lot only)
  • Any public school parking lot
  • Marion Road parking lot at Victory Field
  • O’Connell Park, (lot at the corner of Boylston Street and Mt Auburn Street)

Please note that these locations may be used free of charge, however vehicles may only use available spaces after 7PM and must be moved/removed by 7AM the following day. Vehicles must be removed from school property no later than 6AM. Violators may be towed.

Please remember that parking your vehicle upon any sidewalk is prohibited. Your cooperation in keeping the streets clear of overnight parking and your sidewalks clear of snow and ice will make for safer driving and walking conditions and at the same time, allow the opportunity for the Public Works Department to perform necessary street cleaning and maintenance.


Thank you,

Michael P. Lawn

Chief of Police
