Central Sq. parking lots [Jan. 3rd, 2012|02:03 pm]
The Boston Community


Is anyone familiar with the Cambridge parking lots along Bishop Allen and Prospect that were free on nights and weekends? They are now posted as permit only 24/7. I'm just curious if the city has released any other information about why or when the decision was made. Google didn't really help. I don't really understand it because I think the lots made it a lot easier for people to visit businesses in the square because metered parking is so scarce.

Those lots are privately owned by the Central Plaza Realty Trust, not the city.

Are they also leaving the gates closed 24/7?

I don't know why they *had* allowed the public to park there nights and weekends, since most private lots don't. But it's really too bad if they're no longer allowing it. They never totally filled up, so there's no reason to restrict them.

The owners' insurance providers may have insisted on it in order to limit their liability.
