Marblehead's Winter Parking Ban will continue until April 15, 2013 - and earlier this week, one of our readers asked us if we could provide a list of places where they can legally leave their car overnight. So, as part of this week's You Ask...Patch Answers column, here's a quick run-down of some of the places in town where people without their own spaces can park overnight, though many of these spaces require that the owners retrieve their vehicles before 7 a.m. or they will be ticketed.

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.

Be warned - local police officers will be issuing tickets, not warnings on the first night of the winter parking ban.
Consider yourself warned - tickets, not warnings, will be issued to offending vehicles on the first night of this year's on-street winter parking ban. At the Board of Selectmen's meeting at Abbot Hall Wednesday night, Chairwoman Jackie Belf-Becker announced that vehicles parked overnight on Nov. 26 will be ticketed because "this year there will be multiple efforts to publicize the date." "Our board will be mentioning this date three times, then there will be a code red call to local residents and we will have a notice in the paper as well," she said. The winter parking ban will officially commence at 12:01 a.m. on Nov. 26 and continue until April 15. No parking will be allowed on any street for a period longer than one hour between the …

Marblehead's on-street parking ban will end at midnight tonight.
Earlier this month, the Board of Selectmen unanimously passed a motion to end Marblehead's winter parking ban three weeks early due to the lack of snow during the winter months.

The Board of Selectmen will still have the authority to reinstate the ban in the case of a snow emergency. Full parking ban information can be viewed here on the town's website.
