Not Here Strategic Roadmap to end human trafficking in Maine

The proposed strategic plan includes specific goals that promote an informed social change movement to end human trafficking in Maine. We invite you to download the Roadmap by clicking on the image (left) or HERE.


Here is everything you need to know about parking in Auburn this winter...

To utilize winter relief parking, you MUST have a winter relief parking permit. Winter Relief Parking Permits are FREE and are only available at the Auburn Police Department. Failure to obtain a permit could result in towing of your vehicle. Expenses incurred will include fees to the towing company, a fee of $35 to the City of Auburn, as well as any parking ticket fees for parking in a restricted zone. You are strongly encouraged to obtain a winter relief parking permit to avoid these fees.

Vehicles with winter relief parking permits may park in the winter relief lots until midnight on the day the ban expires. For example, if a parking ban begins at 8:00pm on a Monday, and ends at 7:00am on Tuesday, your vehicle may remain in the lot until midnight on Tuesday. As of 12:01am on Wednesday, it is subject to towing. If the parking ban expires at midnight, you have until midnight the following day to move your vehicle. **The only exception to this rule is the Mechanics Row Parking Garage. [see below]

There is no parking allowed in any city-owned lot between the hours of 12:01 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. from November 15 to April 15, except during a parking ban. If the parking ban expires at midnight, you have until midnight the following day to move your vehicle. This is to allow Public Services to remove any accumulated snow in the lots.


Vehicles with winter relief parking permits may park in the YELLOW, ORANGE or GREEN permit spots in the Mechanics Row Parking Garage. On weekdays, vehicles must be removed by 7:00am if there is no ban in effect. If a parking ban is in effect, vehicles must be removed within an hour after the ban ends. For example, if the parking ban ends at 10:00am, your vehicle must be removed by 11:00am (weekdays only).


Certain areas of the downtown are part of the Business District Zone. Vehicles parked in this zone are exempt from parking bans from 7:00am until 11:00pm. All vehicles parked in the BDZ must be removed by 11:00pm or they may be towed. Please refer to the Business District Zone Map.
