Based on the unanimous support from South End neighborhood associations in the South End Forum, the South End is now a neighborhood where parking space savers are not tolerated even during a snow emergency.

Beginning next winter, Boston’s Public Works Department may remove space savers immediately based on a Mayor’s Hotline or Citizen Connect request. Trash contractors will be instructed to routinely remove any object found in the street during the twice weekly trash pickup. Neighborhood associations will partner with the city by asking their membership to remove any space saver found on the street and place it with trash for pick-up.

Please keep in mind that if you place a space saver and it is gone when you return, it has not necessarily been moved by the owner of the vehicle currently in that space.
