The town's parking ban is in effect from midnight to 6 a.m. through April 15.

The Mansfield Department of Public Works reminds residents that the town's winter parking ban is now in effect.

Per the Town of Mansfield’s Motor Vehicle & Parking Ordinance, Section 182-3:

A. No motor vehicle shall be parked on any public highway under the jurisdiction of the Town of Mansfield, or in any area designated as a municipal parking area, between the hours of midnight and 6:00 a.m., from November 1 through April 15 when snowplowing is required.

B. Any motor vehicle parked in violation of the provisions of Subsection A, above, or in violation of any rule, regulation, order or other ordinance of the Town of Mansfield relative to or in connection with parking on public highways shall be deemed to be "apparently abandoned" as such term is used in § 14-150 of the Connecticut General Statutes, as amended, and such vehicle may then be taken into custody, towed or otherwise removed, stored, and thereafter sold in accordance with the provisions of said § 14-150.

C. The last owner of record of a motor vehicle found apparently abandoned, as shown by the files of the Department of Motor Vehicles, shall be deemed prima facie to have been the owner of such motor vehicle at the time such vehicle was apparently abandoned, and the person who apparently abandoned the same or caused or procured its apparent abandonment.

This ban applies to on-street parking on Storrs Road and Dog
