The Town of Amherst has implemented a Storm and Snow Emergency Parking Ban. When a weather emergency creates the need for Department of Public Works or Police Department to have roadways and town parking lots free of cars, a Parking Emergency will be announced by flashing blue lights at busy intersections, an announcement on the Town of Amherst Homepage, and posts to our Town of Amherst social media accounts (Facebook & Twitter).
