Mayor Announces New Parking Permit Policy

Adapted from a Greenfield Mayor's Office press release:

On the recommendation of the Parking and Traffic Commission, Mayor William Martin announced today the new parking permit policy for downtown Greenfield. “The Parking Commission has been working on this project for five months and has developed what I think is a reasonable program,” said Martin.  “It specifically addresses the difficulty of anyone who comes downtown to shop, dine, or even volunteer in finding parking space close to their destination.
