Medford’s even-side winter parking ban, which is usually in effect from Dec. 1 to April 1, has been eliminated except for declared snow emergencies.
City Councillor Breanna Lungo-Koehn, who worked with the Traffic Commission to implement the change, which is still going to be on a trial basis, has proposed the following resolution to make sure residents know of the change:
“Be it resolved that the City of Medford be notified that the odd/even winter parking ban, which is usually in effect from December 1 until April 1 has been eliminated EXCEPT for declared snow emergencies. Due to the trial nature of this initiative and public safety, it is very important that when their is a declared emergency, our residents abide by the ban in order to make our streets as safe as possible for all.”
The resolution will be taken up at the City Council’s meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, in City Hall’s Howard F. Alden Memorial Auditorium.
