Town Parking Ordinance Reminder

The Hinsdale Police Department would like to remind all operators that the winter parking ban goes into effect on November 1 and runs through April 1.  The Town of Hinsdale Traffic Ordinance specifically regulates and states,

III. Between November 1st and April 1st from 12:00 A.M. to 6:00 A.M., no vehicle shall be parked beyond the boundaries of the public way within the Town so that it interferes with the removal of snow from the highways and parking lots. This shall not apply to vehicles parked in designated areas except between 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. However, the Historical Society lot shall be designated as an overnight lot for emergency purposes only and vehicles must be removed by 7:00 a.m.

IV. There shall be no overnight parking in the Hinsdale Community Center Parking lot between the hours of 12:00 midnight to 7:00 a.m.

V. Any vehicle parked contrary to this ordinance may be towed at the owners’ expense, in the following manner:

a. Any Police Officer may authorize towing for any violations of this ordinance.

b. The Supervisor of the Hinsdale Highway Department or his designee may order vehicles towed for violations of Section III when said violator is impeding the plowing or removal of snow.

c. Any person(s) whose vehicle is towed pursuant to this ordinance shall be liable for all costs of such towing and storage, but shall have a right to a hearing upon the same terms and conditions as set forth in RSA 262:33 II and III.

Town residents should also be aware that in July 2015 the Hinsdale Board of Selectmen amended the Traffic Ordinance to include no parking on the following streets year round.

  1. There shall be no parking unless permission is obtained through the Hinsdale Police Department on Depot Street, Hancock Street, High Street, Spring Street, Highland Avenue, Cottage Street, Plain Road, Monument Road, Meetinghouse Road, Hancock Street, Pleasant Street, Prospect Street between Route 119 (east end), School Street in areas not specifically designated and marked for parking, and River
  2. The two parking spaces in front of the Hinsdale Police Department shall be for the public conducting police business only at all times of the day or night.
