Parking Enforcement Consideration Application



  • Parking consideration allows people visiting Cambridge residents in their homes to park nearby without receiving a parking ticket.
  • Parking consideration allows visitors to park in Resident Parking Permit areas only.  All other restrictions continue to be enforced. Parking consideration does not apply at parking meters.
