WINTER PARKING & IMPEDIMENT BAN

  • There will be no on-street parking within any publicly maintained right-of-way in Belchertown from 11:00PM to 7:00AM from November 1, 2021 to April 1, 2022.
  • There will be no parking anywhere within any publicly maintained right-of-way, that interferes with snow removal operations at any time during the day or night when there is a snowstorm in progress and the snow removal trucks are clearing snow and ice from said public ways.
  • Persons not adhering to these regulations will have their vehicle towed at their own expense.
  • Residents are required to remove any obstacles within the Right-of-Way that impede the streets/roadways such as basketball hoops and rubbish barrels. Items such as these prevent snow plows from street widening and pushing back embankments during the winter season. The Town of Belchertown will not be responsible for damage(s) occurring to obstacles within the Right-Of-Way (ROW).
  • Items interfering with snow and ice removal operations will be removed and disposed of at the discretion of the Department of Public Works and the Police Department.

  E
AST STREET WILL BE CLOSED TO THRU TRAFFIC UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

East Street Breach

After several inches of heavy rain, a large portion of the roadway collapsed due to a beaver dam failure that occurred on July 18, 2021. Due to the record rainfall this July, storm water has filled natural storage areas to capacity and completely saturated soils creating ideal conditions for flash flooding during even minor rain events. We will continue to monitor the location on East Street as well as other areas of Town that have been affected by these unprecedented conditions.  The DPW will begin to make repairs as conditions improve.
