We are here for you.  If you have questions, comments, or requests, please contact us.

Parking Ban

By ordinance, the City of South Portland maintains a winter parking ban. The ban prohibits parking on all city streets from December 1 to April 1, between 12 midnight and 6am. In the event of inclement weather, parking ban hours may be extended at the City’s discretion. 

The City does not currently provide a designated public parking area for off-street parking.

If your vehicle was parked in violation of the ban and has been towed, please contact the Police Department at 799-5511, ext 8575, for information regarding recovery of the vehicle.
