Newton's winter overnight parking ban is outdated, unnecessary, and exclusionary. It presents a huge burden to households with more than one working person, multigenerational households, disabled and/or elderly people, and generally people of lesser means. Leaders of Newton's Public Works, Fire, and Police Departments have stated that the ban is unnecessary, and we proved it during the early COVID years.
