During a "normal" snow event, the Town may implement a winter parking ban to complete snow operations. When implemented, on street parking is prohibited throughout the town between 1 am and 6 am. 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 at the owner's expense.
When a parking ban is instituted, the Town of Danvers notifies residents and businesses by phone, email and/or cell phone 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 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 please visit the Town of Danvers MyConnect Portal. You have the option to receive information from us via phone call, email and/or cell phone text message.
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 home page and social media outlets. Like our Danvers Department of Public Works Facebook Page and follow us on Twitter for updates.
The parking ban remains in effect until snow operations are completed. The Town will make a second call to residents and businesses to notify you when the parking ban is lifted. A parking ban 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. Clear streets make snow removal by the Department of Public Works more efficient.
