The Town of Mansfield provides time-restricted (as posted) free parking in the downtown central core along North Main Street. This prevents overflow from the MBTA lots into parking spaces that serve our downtown business, its employees, and residents. For our residents and merchants downtown, we offer Central Business District (Downtown) Parking Permits. Hanging this permit from your rearview mirror allows your vehicle to park in designated areas for longer than the designated two-hour or four-hour limits without having to worry about a ticket.
This DOES NOT supersede the Downtown Overnight Parking Ban or allow for extended time on North Main St.
This permit DOES NOT allow for overnight parking during the downtown winter parking ban that is in effect annually from December 1st to April 30th (12 am-6 am No Parking on-street).
The 2023 Permits are here and ready to go! Each permit costs $20 and is issued at the Mansfield Police Department located at 500A East Street. Please make checks payable to the "Town of Mansfield."
