Just a reminder that Walpole does have a parking ban. If the snow out there isn’t enough to move, they don’t need cars as well. – Lil
Town of Walpole Parking Ordinance 2002-01: Under Section II, A, 1, d
No person, except a person operating an emergency vehicle, shall stop, park, or leave standing any vehicle, whether attended or unattended,
(i) at any place where and when parking has been prohibited during the winter season pursuant to a notice issued by the Board of Selectmen to facilitate snow plowing or snow or ice removal within the Town of Walpole, which notice has been published by order of the Board of Selectmen in a newspaper of general circulation and posted at the places where minutes of Selectman’s meetings are ordinarily posted (Prohibited Parking); or
(ii) for more than two hours during a major storm (which in the case of a snowstorm shall be a storm with a snowfall of six inches or more) (Prohibited Parking); and in order to facilitate such snow plowing or snow or ice removal, any vehicle parked in violation of this paragraph (d) may be towed by wrecker at the owner’s expense and risk whenever the Road Agent or police authorities so determine.
Lil, could you then please post a list and/or map of which parking places are “prohibited during the winter season”? My offices are above Burdick’s Restaurant and I wonder where my team of seven staff can park.

Will see if I can track down an answer to your question, Todd.
Here we are, Todd. From Sarah st the Selectboard office.
Hi Lil: People can park in the lot behind Mascoma Bank and to the north of the Old Firehouse Building. The Town maintains that parking lot. Eventually, once the Brownfields remediation is completed for the former Central Plating Site, there will be more Town parking spaces in that location.
Thanks you Sarah and Lil.
No email about Town Clerk’s office being closed today, on tax day?

I have been in touch with Sarah so I know she is there. Did you call Sandy and/or Megan?
I just learned that the deadline for property taxes has been postponed to Monday.
