Downtown Parking


It is that time of year! The annual downtown winter parking ban is in effect from December 1st - April 30th regardless of snow! The downtown winter parking ban restricts overnight parking in the downtown area. Between the hours of 12 am and 6 am, there is NO PARKING on the streets including the area defined as follows: Rumford Ave. to Hope St. between the South Common and North Common. Consult the map below. We issue warnings (reminders) for the first few weeks but will begin citing vehicles in violation. Questions? Contact Parking Officer Steve Simonds at or call 508-261-7300 x7.

When commuter train parking overflows into the downtown area, our parking enforcement officer issues tickets to the vehicles parked longer than the two-hour limit. For our residents and merchants downtown, we offer Central Business District (downtown) Parking Permits. Hanging this permit from your rearview mirror allows your vehicle to park in designated areas for longer than two hours without having to worry about a ticket - this DOES NOT supersede the Downtown Overnight Parking Ban.

The 2019 Permits are here and ready to go! Each permit costs $20 and is issued here at the PD. Please make checks payable to "Town of Mansfield."

Residents: Do you live on a street with a two-hour limit? Fill out the Resident form found here, or come into the station for a printed copy, Limit of two permits per house/apartment. *Note* Even with a resident permit, parking in certain two-hour areas is still restricted. Check the map below!

Merchants: Do you own/operate a business in the downtown area? Fill out the Merchant form found hereor come into the station for a printed copy. Limit of 10 permits per business. *Note* Even with a merchant permit, parking in certain two-hour areas is still restricted. Check the map below!

Parking Permits will be available for purchase beginning in December. Applications are available.
