Temporary Changes to City of Haverhill Parking Management and Enforcement in the Downtown Area.
 The City of Haverhill is adapting parking enforcement and parking rules to support residents and business as we navigate the Covid-19 public health crisis.

  • The following will remain in effect until further notice, unless otherwise stated.
  • No payment of parking fees for on street parking or for City owned parking lots.
  • All signs that indicate no parking, including no parking during a specified time, will still be enforced.
  • Two (2) hour time limit is still in effect and will be enforced. All statutory regulations such as No Parking in a cross walk, within 15 feet of a fire hydrant, etc. will be strictly enforced.

The City is responsible for the overall management of nearly 1,000 City owned parking spaces in the Central Business District with on-street parking, 11 parking lots, the Herbert H. Goecke Parking garage and the back-in-angle parking area on Bailey Boulevard. Paid parking operations are run by Laz Parking, a private parking contractor. 

The MVRTA is responsible for the parking garage on Granite St. -

The MBTA is responsible for the parking lot adjacent to the Haverhill MBTA Station and Bradford -

The Central Business District (CBD) parking plan provides many important benefits:

  • promotes parking turnover in the CBD
  • assists with relieving traffic congestion throughout the downtown which stimulates residential and business opportunities
  • provides funding through the paid parking program to offset parking expenses.

To ensure the compliance with the latest restrictions, always be sure to follow the posted signs.
