Residents will now being able to park on Danvers streets overnight this winter unless a snowstorm is approaching.
That was the decision made Tuesday night by the Board of Selectmen in Danvers, which unanimously voted to change a town policy that has existed for more than 40 years banning overnight parking between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. during the winter.
Meaning that beginning Jan. 1, Danvers' ban will only go into place when a snowstorm is forecasted to drop snow and will still apply only to the hours of 1-6 a.m.
So, we have to ask - should the town Marblehead make changes to its current winter parking policy?
Would you consider a blue light emergency warning system similar to one that was recently-implemented in Peabody?
The winter parking ban will continue until April 15. No parking will be allowed on any street for a period longer than one hour between the hours of midnight and 7 a.m.
