The Overnight Winter Parking Ban prohibits parking on public ways for more than one hour between 1 A.M. and 6 A.M. from December 1st until April 1st only when--in anticipation of snow--a Town-wide call is made on our Community Notification System [Connect CTY]. Vehicles that remain on the road during a ban on overnight parking may be ticketed and/or towed. A second call will be made when the prohibition is lifted.
The intent of the regulations is to reduce the need for homeowners with limited parking to find off-street parking all winter even when there is no snow on the roads and no need to plow.  Each year, the program will continue until April 1 and the impact evaluated.
Land lines of all residents and businesses are automatically included in our community notification system. In addition, media outlets [DCAT (cable TV), Danvers DPW Facebook and Twitter pages] are notified. Any resident who wishes to add an Email address or a mobile phone number may do so as follows:
  1. From the Town’s website at www.danvers.govoffice.com;

  2. Click on the “Connect CTY” icon on the right hand bottom section of our website;

  3. Follow the prompts to “Modify Contact Information.”

Notice of an Overnight Winter Parking Ban can be sent by phone to land lines or mobile phones, by Email or by text.
