The East Boston parking freeze is one of three parking freezes in the City of Boston administered by the Air Pollution Control Commission.
Established in 1989 under rules of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (310 CMR 7.31), the East Boston parking freeze limits the availability of park-and-fly parking spaces and rental motor vehicle parking spaces in East Boston. The APCC adopted regulations for the East Boston freeze (in PDF format) in 1992. The East Boston freeze that the APCC administers works in conjunction with the Massport/Logan Airport parking freeze (310 CMR 7.30), which places a cap on the number of commercial and employee parking spaces in Logan Airport.
There are currently four active permits for park-and-fly parking lots with a total of 1,156 spaces, and four active permits for rental motor vehicle parking lots with a total of 2,906 spaces. There are no spaces in the East Boston parking freeze bank, and the APCC is not accepting applications for new East Boston permits.
