Effective July 1, 2018, all parking meters in the City of Concord will be enforced from Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. This includes all on-street meters. Parking in the garages is free on Saturdays. On-street meter rates are $1.00 / hour. Parking meters are free after 7 p.m., on weekends, and on holidays. On-street meters have 3 hour and 10 hour time limits. View the map below for more information. A good rule of thumb is: If the banks are closed for a holiday, you don't have to feed the meter.
See the map below for information about locations with 10-hour time limits. Parking garages are free on Saturdays.
Don't assume it is a free parking space or you may get a ticket. The best thing to do is move to another meter space or if using a pay by space or pay and display kiosk, utilize another kiosk in the same area. Report the problem to the Parking Division at 603-225-8640.
If you can get to the meter, yes. This may mean going to the end of the block and walking back up the sidewalk.
You may park overnight unless a Parking Ban has been called. Pay special attention during the winter months as this is when the Parking Bans are frequently used. A vehicle is only permitted to be parked for a duration of 48 hrs on any public street before it must be moved.
After 10 days and again at 20 days, you will be charged a delinquent penalty. Should you accumulate five outstanding citations or an amount over one hundred dollars, your vehicle is subject to impoundment. You will have to pay by cash or cashiers check all outstanding fines, including a $100 impoundment fee, prior to your vehicle being released. If your vehicle is booted and you do not pay within 24hrs your vehicle will be towed. You will be responsible for all City charges and any towing company charges and storage fees.
We can only help you BEFORE your vehicle is impounded. After the vehicle is impounded we must collect all outstanding fines and fees before it can be released.
Currently the disabled permit/placard allows you to park without paying. Effective July 1, 2018, time limits will be enforced at all public Handicap Parking Spaces (on-street, as well as municipal parking garages and lots) per RSA 265:74 and City Code of Ordinances 18-1-16. You may never park is a designated disabled access aisle, even with a valid disabled plate or placard.
