The residential lot behind and around the Church Street Pump Station will be closed beginning November 3, 2018 until further notice. This closure is needed to facilitate the construction related to the Church Street Pump Station Force Main Replacement Project. Those residents with resident stickers may park in empty spaces (in areas not designated as lease spaces) within the lot directly adjacent to the pump station. As a reminder, residents are not allowed to use residential parking lots for long term storage of vehicles. Vehicles being stored and found to interfere with snow removing activities or other town operations may be towed at the owner’s expense. Please click here to see a map location plan.
