Metered Parking Enforcement Resumes August 3rd


The Town of Amherst will resume enforcement of metered parking spaces beginning August 3, 2020.  

As Downtown businesses begin to reopen and students are expected back in the area, the demand on our parking spaces has increased. Our parking enforcement efforts play an important role in ensuring availability and access to all by encouraging the turnover of spaces.   

During the last few months our parking enforcement team members were deployed to help fill other staffing needs for the Town, such as delivering meals to seniors and managing the visitor flow at Puffers Pond. The Town has continued to monitor the appropriate use of handicap spaces, no parking zones, hydrant zones and other areas during this time.  

Signage will be posted at the parking kiosks and the Town will work with both the Amherst Business Improvement District and the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce to share this update with our business community.  

We ask that community members and visitors be aware of this resumption of enforcement to avoid any potential ticketing.  

If you have questions, please contact the Parking Office at 413-259-3020 or email
