[ARCHIVED] Free Parking Throughout Downtown Amherst Saturday, December 7th!


In support of the annual “Greeting Card Day” and our local restaurants, retailers and service providers, there will be free parking in all the public parking lots and on-street metered spaces throughout downtown Amherst on Saturday, December 7th. This is by vote of the Select Board, in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce and the BID, and provides convenience to customers on what is typically the year’s biggest shopping day in Amherst. Time limits and safety restrictions apply, and will be enforced for the benefit of all downtown visitors.

The next two Saturdays -- December 14th and 21st -- there will be free parking in all the parking lots with the pay-by-space machines. These are the Boltwood Garage, the Town-owned portion of the CVS lot, Amity Street lot, Main St. lot, Town Hall lot and Spring St. lot.

Happy Holidays from the Town of Amherst!
