NAHANT — Nahant’s winter parking ban will go into effect Wednesday.
From Dec. 21 until March 20, 2017, all vehicles must be parked off the street between 12 a.m. and 6 a.m.
Residents with inadequate off-street parking can apply for a parking waiver at the Nahant Police Station. Applicants will be notified whether their application has been approved once it has been reviewed by the Police Department.
A $30 nonrefundable application fee is required to process each request for a waiver, paid by check or money order only and made payable to the “Town of Nahant” prior to review of the application. All vehicles at the residence must be registered to the address.
All residents, with or without a parking waiver, must find off street parking when it snows or when a snow emergency has been declared due to a forecasted snowfall.
The Police Department, Fire Department and Department of Public Works must approve the parking location selected by the applicant. Should any of the departments reject the location selected, the application will be returned to the applicant so they can find a suitable area to park.
Cars left on the street during snow emergencies will be towed at the owner’s expense. The owner will also be fined $50. Violations will result in a review and possible revocation of the parking waiver.
