Disability Parking

Requesting a Curbside Disabled Parking Space

A resident who desires a designated curbside disabled parking space in front of or near their residence may submit a completed application (PDF) to the Transportation Division for consideration by the Transportation Board at its next available meeting. A completed application must include:

  • Copy of a valid Massachusetts Disabled Persons Parking Identification Placard. To apply for a placard, contact the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles - Medical Affairs
  • Copy of a valid driver's license and vehicle registration indicating the residence location of the party requesting the disability parking space
  • Signed application form including applicant and physician statements

After you apply...

The Transportation Division will notify applicants and the abutting neighborhood when the disabled parking space request is to be considered by the Transportation Board. If the Transportation Board approves the request, the signage designating the curbside disabled parking space will be installed by the DPW Highway Department in approximately 1 month.

Appealing Denied Parking Space Requests

There is a 21-day appeal period for all Transportation Board decisions. Appeals can be filed with the Board of Selectman's office to review the Transportation Board's decision.
