Brookline announced this morning it's going back to being a stern parking taskmaster, now that offices and stores are, even if slowly, re-opening.
Effective June 1, you can't park more than two hours during the day in Brookline, you'll have to feed meters, and you better not even think of leaving your car overnight on one of the town's pristine roadways. The town stopped enforcement in March due to, of course, Covid-19.
In a statement today, the town added it is keeping a couple of Covid-19-related innovations in place for at least the month of June:
Delivery and takeout parking zones that were established in March at the outset of the emergency have been extended to at least June 30 in order to facilitate ease of access for customers collecting takeout from restaurants.
Additionally, expanded pedestrian walkways will remain in effect until at least June 30.
Should you get a ticket, you'll have to appeal it via e-mail or snail mail; Covid-19 means the town won't be doing in-person ticket appeals for the foreseeable future.
