When is it?
The winter parking ban may be enacted from December 1 to April 1 if weather conditions warrant.
How is parking affected?
The Danvers Winter Parking Ban for “normal” operations prohibits on-street parking between 1:00 AM and 6:00 AM, only if the parking ban is implemented. During a “major” winter storm, the parking ban may be enacted around the clock until winter storm operations are completed. The fine for violating the parking ban is $25 and the vehicle may be towed.
How will I be notified?
When a parking ban is instituted, you will be notified by the Town of Danvers by phone, e-mail and/or text message based on your preferences specified in our community notification system, Blackboard Connect. During “normal” operations, a Town-wide call will be made the evening prior by 7:00 PM, with notification of the implemented overnight parking ban. For “major” winter storms, a Town-wide call will be made no later than six hours ahead of the effective time, when possible.
Land lines of all residents and businesses are automatically included in our community notification system. If you would like to change your preferences, go to danvers-ma.proudcity.com, select Departments—Public Works and click on “Set Up Notification Preferences”.
Message boards displaying the parking ban notification will be placed on main roads in town. In addition, local news websites and DCAT are notified. Information is also posted to the Town of Danvers website at danvers-ma.proudcity.com and social media outlets. Like our Danvers DPW Facebook Page and follow us on Twitter @DanversDPW for updates.
How long will the parking ban last?
Parking ban remains in effect until it is called off. A second call will be made when the parking ban is lifted. It may last several days depending on the extent of the storm and cleanup operations. Please be mindful to keep vehicles off streets during snowstorms when possible, even when the parking ban is not in place. This will make snow removal by the DPW more efficient.
