  New Parking Advocacy Committee
The NABB Parking Advocacy Committee works to improve the Back Bay ‘Parking Quality of Life.’  We work with the City of Boston, its Councilors and the Department of Transportation to improve the resident parking experience in the Back Bay. The group is currently engaged with the City on the mix of Residential Parking Spots and Metered Spaces. Click here for more information.
