Familiarize yourself with the rules...

From Provincetown Police:

Chief’s Corner,


But please don’t look for these just yet……

So this Sunday (April 1st) is the first day 2018 seasonal parking restrictions go into effect.

Starting then all vehicles parked in resident zones must have a 2018 Parking Sticker. As a courtesy, all 2017 permits will be honored until April 30th, when they expire and are no longer valid.

The parking department, which is located inside the lobby of the police station, is open daily (Monday thru Friday from 8:00am to 12:30pm and again from 12:30pm to 3:00pm.

The change also includes the return of the prohibition of cars parking along Commercial Street. This means no parking is allowed on Commercial Street between Pearl Street and Central Street until after Halloween.

Paid parking will begin on Tuesday May 1st at all kiosks, parking meters and at the two staffed parking lots, Municipal Parking Lot (MPL) and Grace Hall Parking Lot.

While we transition in and get used to this “emerging from winter-mode” change, you may note a brightly colored slip under your windshield wiper with no fine listed, it is a Courtesy Notice given as a warning by a member of the Provincetown Police or Parking Department. No action is required; it is just a reminder that you should not violate a parking regulation to prevent being ticketed.

Please note, if you are parked obstructing a corner, crosswalk, sidewalk, fire hydrant, upon the painted yellow hash mark lines or in a resident or unloading zones these are separate and distinct violations and may result in a parking ticket if we are unable to quickly locate you.

As always, thank you for your support!
