It’s that time of year again.  Cities and towns across the Berkshires planning for the inevitable in New England…lots of snow.  Today North Adams posted the dates of the city’s winter parking ban on the North Adams City Hall Facebook page.

The North Adams Winter Parking Ban will go into effect this coming Monday, November 1st.  The ban will be in effect until Friday, April 15th of 2022.  The City Ordinance states “no person shall park any vehicle, except in an emergency, on any street or highway for a period of time longer than one hour between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. of any day.”

According to the post, North Adams Police will start issuing paper warnings to those in violation beginning on Monday.  The following week the grace and warring period will be over and you’ll have to open your wallet if you are in violation of the ban.  The city encourages residents to use this time to find other parking options before the ban kicks in.  North Adams also reminded residents in the post that parking on sidewalks is prohibited all year and not just during the parking ban period.
