The Town of Framingham enforces a year-round ODD/EVEN side parking restriction program. During even years parking is allowed on the even-numbered side of streets from Jan 1st to Dec 31st. During odd years parking is allowed on the odd-numbered side from Jan 1st to Dec 31st. Centrally located signs displaying ODD or EVEN restrictions according to the year exist in 22 locations throughout town. Yearly changes are broadcast through the media and with the town’s rapid telephone notification system.
This restriction is enforced on a block-by-block basis. An exception to this would be (for example) if during an even year, a street has several blocks of intersecting streets along its length and one block between intersecting streets had pre-existing town signs prohibiting parking year-round on the even-numbered side, residents could legally park on the odd-numbered side -only for that affected block- regardless of Odd or Even years.
WEATHER EMERGENCY PARKING BAN
