Who Must Register Their Vehicles?
Vehicles for all residents (full-time or part-time), as well as frequent visitors 1 or guests 2 per the Rules and Regulations must be registered with Liberty Commons Condominium Trust. Any Unit Owner who does not register vehicles associated with their Unit, shall be subject to daily fines and the vehicle is subject to immediate removal by towing at the sole expense and liability of the vehicle owner at the sole discretion of Liberty Commons’ Board of Trustees. Please consult the Rules and Regulations for other motor vehicle and parking restrictions that apply.
A “resident vehicle” is a vehicle owned, leased or operated by a full-time permanent legal resident Unit Owner or a full-time permanent legal resident Non-Owner Resident that is properly registered with the Registry of Motor Vehicles with a legal garaging address of either Berrington Road or Gates Crossing in Leominster, Massachusetts. Liberty Commons Condominium Trust may request and require proof of legal registration, at Liberty Commons’ Board of Trustees‘ discretion. Any vehicle improperly registered with Liberty Commons Condominium Trust as a “resident vehicle” that does not have a legal garaging address on the valid original registration and the owner/operator is not a full-time resident of Liberty Commons shall be deemed a visitor, guest or non-resident and subject to all applicable Rules and Regulations and shall invalidate the “resident vehicle” registration with Liberty Commons Condominium Trust.
Visitor, Guest or Non-Resident Vehicle
A “visitor, guest or non-resident vehicle” is any vehicle not a “resident vehicle” as defined above. Visitor, guest or non-resident vehicles are subject to Liberty Commons’ Rules and Regulations and are subject to removal by towing at the vehicle owner’s sole expense and liability without notice.

Liberty Commons Condominium Trust like most every other community association or properties has limited parking available. Each Unit is permitted to park a maximum of two properly registered and inspected vehicles on the property. Those who exceed the maximum are subject to daily fines and/or removal of the vehicle(s) at the vehicle owner’s sole expense and liability, as outlined in the Rules and Regulations. 3
There are 277 parking spaces at Liberty Commons. Three are seasonal parking spaces and cannot be utilized during the winter for parking, as it is intended to be used to dispose of excessive snow and parking for snow removal equipment. There are 132 Units that are permitted to use a maximum of two non-exclusive parking spaces, so 264 parking spaces that are required. That leaves 10 parking spaces for 132 Units, so that’s only one guest parking space for every 10 Units. It is completely irrelevant that some Units normally only have one vehicle parked on the property. Each Unit is allowed to use a maximum of two non-exclusive parking spaces as regulated and restricted in the Rules and Regulations.
Winter Parking Ban
When snow or winter weather accumulations are predicted (up to 24-hours before a storm), when snow or winter accumulation is falling and until the final snow removal cleanup has been completed (up to a minimum of 72-hours after a storm has stopped), no visitor, guest or other non-resident vehicles are permitted on Liberty Commons’ property. Any unregistered or unknown vehicles are subject to immediate removal by towing at the vehicle owner’s sole expense and liability.
