Residents encouraged to obtain Roxbury resident parking permit to park legally on Norfolk Street.

At the request of neighborhood residents, the Boston Transportation Department is expanding the Roxbury Resident Parking Program to include the left side of Norfolk Street, between Higland and Lambert Streets.  “Two Hour Parking, Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 6 PM, Roxbury Resident Permits Exempt” parking regulations are being implemented to ensure that residents are given preference to on street parking spaces in the area.  Signs will be posted by August 12 and followed up with the distribution of courtesy notices by Parking Enforcement Officers.  Actual enforcement of the new Roxbury Resident Parking Regulations will begin on Monday, August 29, 2016, with vehicles parked in violation subject to a $40 parking ticket fine.

When the new program goes into effect, it will be necessary for a Roxbury Resident Parking Permit to be affixed to the passenger side, rear windshield of the vehicle in order for the vehicle to legally park in Resident Permit Parking Only spaces on Norfolk Street.  Residents may apply for a permit as follows.

Applications may also be dropped off at the City Hall to Go Truck – please see to learn when the truck will be located in Roxbury.
