Alternative Parking Locations

Parking at Liberty Commons Condominium Trust is regulated and monitored, as there are only a finite number of parking spaces on the property for the 132 Units. Each Unit is allowed to park a maximum of two vehicles and the maximum use of two parking spaces per Unit in full compliance with the Condominium documents (Master Deed, Declaration of Trust and Bylaws, Unit Deed, etc.) and the Rules and Regulations. No one is entitled to park more than two vehicles or the use of more than two parking spaces in the Common Area (i.e., the area outside of the legal boundaries of the Unit) and no individual Unit Owner has control over the Common Area and therefore cannot make exception or exemptions from the Condominium documents. Per the Condominium documents the Board of Trustees regulate parking, can issue fines or have vehicles removed by towing1 at the vehicle owner’s/operator’s sole expense and liability.

Liberty Commons looses a minimum of three parking spaces in the winter and usually more due to snow stacking and storage, therefore, Liberty Commons has Snow Removal Procedures each year that may be updated or amended to address challenges from previous lessons learned. The basics restrictions are that no visitor, guest or nonresident vehicle may be operated or parked on Liberty Commons’ property when snow or winter accumulation has been predicted until the final cleanup of the property has been completed, without exception. Liberty Commons’ residents need every available parking space to move vehicles so snow removal can occur in a safe and efficient manner to reduce our collective liabilities. Parking is not always convenient in winter months and it may mean you have to walk a distance to or from your Unit, but this is a part of community living in New England. Everyone should wear weather condition appropriate footwear and always use good judgement and all reasonable care when navigating Liberty Commons’ property by foot or vehicle at all times. Everyone should know that it snows and that there are other wintery and slippery conditions in New England and monitor weather predictions and conditions themselves.

In The Winter

If all of these parking spaces are occupied, then parking in the one assigned parking space assigned to your Unit in the Rules and Regulations in front of or on the side of the building, provided that the vehicle is immediately moved or removed when the grounds maintenance contractor is cleaning from that area of the property. It should be noted that it is no one’s responsibility to notify anyone when you need to move your vehicle(s) as this responsibility falls on the individual Unit Owner or Non-Owner Resident to be aware and observant.


1 No one other than the Board of Trustees may have any vehicle towed from Liberty Commons’ property, as individual Unit Owners are not in control of the property under the law. There are penalties under Massachusetts General Laws should an individual Unit Owner tow another person’s vehicle without proper authorization.
