Town Hall Parking lot

The outdoor parking lot adjacent to the Town Hall is now open, it is important to respect the existing signage.
The public parking spaces have time restrictions as well as time slots where parking is prohibited to allow for cleaning or plowing of the lot. These restrictions are necessary to facilitate maintenance and snow removal. Complying with them will spare you the inconvenience of being ticketed or having your vehicle towed.
Please make sure to respect the spaces reserved for people with reduced mobility and for employees.


For spaces reserved for the public, it is forbidden to leave your vehicle in the parking lot adjacent to Town Hall for more than 24 consecutive hours.
