Winter parking ban being reconsidered


Officials in Medford are looking into changing city’s winter parking ban, which remains in effect throughout the season whether there is snow or not. From Dec. 1 to April 1 each year, parking is limited to one side of the street in all Medford neighborhoods. This can lead to arguments — and sometimes fights — over spaces in parts of the city where parking is tight, City Councilor Breanna Lungo-Koehn said in a recent council meeting. “It causes a real problem, for not the entire community, but a good portion of it,” Lungo-Koehn said. Lungo-Koehn called for a resolution during the council’s meeting Jan. 15 to implement a pilot program in which the parking ban is only in effect during snow emergencies. The council unanimously agreed to send the resolution to the city’s Traffic Commission for consideration.
