Parking isn't allowed on public streets in Bar Harbor overnight, from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m. to allow for snow removal from November 15th to April 15th. However the ordinances were updated in regards to overnight parking in municipal lots.

Overnight parking IS allowed in the municipal lots, with the understanding that vehicles cannot be stationary for longer than 72 hours.

The Bar Harbor Police Department will provide notice in each lot that the vehicles need to be moved so that the parking lot may be cleared of snow.

The exact wording from the Bar Harbor Ordinance is below

Snow removal.
A. No vehicle shall be parked at any time on any public street or way so as to interfere with or hinder the removal of snow from said street or way by the Town plowing or loading or hauling.

B. For the purpose of facilitating the removal of snow, the Director of Public Works or Chief of Police may cause to be placed properly marked signs along any street or streets as either shall, from time to time, deem necessary. It shall be unlawful for the operator of any vehicle to enter upon, stop or park within the spaces indicated by such signs.

C. When snow removal is needed in public parking lots, the Director of Public Works shall notify the Police Department of the planned removal. The Police Department will cause notice to be placed conspicuously in said lots, providing advance notice to vehicle owners to move their vehicles prior to the commencement of plowing operations (Reference § 194-44.)
