Street Parking - OVERNIGHT PARKING WINTER restriction
The Town of Middlebury prohibits the parking on any Town roadway between midnight-6:00am from November 1st through March 31st, except where existing signage permits such parking, to ensure that the Town can efficiently plow the roads in the event of a snowstorm. The overnight parking locations listed above can be used by a resident/visitor who is otherwise unable to park on the street during overnight due to this restriction.

Electric vehicle Charging Locations in Town
Throughout Middlebury there are a growing number of EV charging sites located both on public and private properties. The Town has installed downtown both Level 2 & Level 3 (DC Fast Charging) charging sites at the Mill Street public parking lot downtown, just one block west from Main Street. These EV charging sites are publicly available 24-hours a day.
