Map of Somerville Lots Where You May Park During a Snow Emergency

An astute resident asked us for this map. So, tada, here it is, the Lindsey Anne Hildebrand Honorary Where to Park in City Lots Map. During a snow emergency, parking will be allowed only on the odd-numbered side of the street (unless otherwise posted). Cars not moved from the even-numbered side of the street by the start of the emergency will be subject to ticketing and towing. 

BUT, residents may also park in any municipal lot or in designated school parking lots as soon as the emergency commences. Meters at these lots (and citywide) will not be in effect during the emergency. Check out the map above to find a lot near you. Parking guidelines and a list of these lots can be found at www.somervillema.gov/snow. If you prefer a list of lots, see below:

  1. Is there a reason the lot at Dilboy, which is town property, isnt open for Ward 7 residents? The West Somerville School is not exactly central, and doesnt have nearly the room to accommodate the huge number of displaced vehicles.

  2. Good catch! Just got the answer. Part of Dilboy's lot is available for emergency parking and part will be used to place towed cars. Signs are posted to designate these two areas. We'll update the map. Thanks for asking.
