Based on the unanimous support from South End neighborhood associations in the South End Forum, the South End is now a neighborhood where parking space savers are not tolerated even during a snow emergency.
Beginning next winter, Boston’s Public Works Department may remove space savers immediately based on a Mayor’s Hotline or Citizen Connect request. Trash contractors will be instructed to routinely remove any object found in the street during the twice weekly trash pickup. Neighborhood associations will partner with the city by asking their membership to remove any space saver found on the street and place it with trash for pick-up.
Please keep in mind that if you place a space saver and it is gone when you return, it has not necessarily been moved by the owner of the vehicle currently in that space.
One thought on “South End a “Space Saver” Free Zone”
A (small) point of clarification for your own info. As I understand it, because the (previous) Mayor’s office has disseminated the “Prep for Winter” flyers which state that one has a 48 hour window that the City will tolerate Space Savers that the DPW & Sanitation Dept will need to be tolerant of Space Savers during Emergency Snow periods. I don’t believe that this information should be given to the community, however… it’s liable to confuse the issue. Mark
