Welcome to the Barre City Parking Information page.

There are also lots dedicated to the employees of City Place and Blanchard Block from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. excluding weekends and holidays.  These vehicles will display the appropriate parking permit in their vehicle while parked in their respective lot. They must park in their assigned lot to avoid a parking violation.

Parking meters are in use Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  Parking in Barre is free after 5 pm, on weekends, and on public holidays.
