While I was away

Last week I took some time to pursue my life passion of competitive sailing in Marblehead, but while I was away Jessica Scarpati of the Brookline TAB wrote a great article about the Permit Parking situation in Brookline. The article was a result of my comment on the TAB Blogs. Many people don't know that the town has started offering $25 annual on-street daytime permits. I went to a few of the Transportation Board meetings to help shape this policy, but a lot of the shaping was done by the Coolidge Corner Merchants Association.

Here are the important details:

On Monday (10/1) they will start enforcing the two-hour limit for non-permitted cars.

The permit allows you to park for more than 2 hours at a time on your street ONLY.

The permit still does not allow "overnight (2 AM - 6 AM)" parking on the streets. ("Never in our lifetime" - Michael Sandman - Transportation Board Chairman)

You have to go to the Transportation Department on Hammond St. to get your permit. Make sure they do not write your full home address on the sticker.
