Penn's Hill Resident Parking Program

Penn's Hill Resident Parking Program

On October 15, 2018, the City Council voted on a series of changes to the Residential Permit Parking program in the City of Quincy. The vote initiated Phase I of the City’s Residential Permit Parking Program, which will start in the Penn's Hill area. These changes were recommended by the TPAL Department as part of the opening of the Independence Avenue MBTA gate.

The gate is slated to open the week of December 3, 2018.

Below are the key points and instructions to apply for a Resident Parking Permit:
