City Reminds Citizens of Street Maintenance Parking Restrictions

PARKING ALERT

The City of Portland is reminding citizens who live or park on the peninsula that compliance with overnight (and in some areas daytime) street maintenance parking restrictions is crucial. Street sweeping operations and regulations have been in effect since October 1, but performance has been compromised due to lack of compliance. City staff are running out of time to sweep and remove leaves before winter. Failure to comply regularly results in ticketing, but the City is now warning that cars are subject to towing.  

When cars do not move, City street sweeping machines are not able to sweep to the curb and instead are forced to try to maneuver around vehicles or go down the middle of the street. This ends up leaving additional debris and leaves near the curb and clogging storm drains. Additionally, sometimes sweepers are sent back out on non-restricted nights in the hopes of finding cars gone from missed areas. 

The majority of vehicles are currently required to move on either Monday nights (for Tuesday 12:01 AM signs) or Tuesday nights (for Wednesday 12:01 AM signs) depending on the area. When restrictions are in place, residents are asked to park cars on the opposite side of the street. 

The current street maintenance parking restrictions by zone can be found at www.portlandmaine.gov/streetmaintenance.
