Commercial Parking Dispute In Barnstable May Head To State Supreme Court

Barnstable officials have not said whether they will continue to appeal. The Massachusetts Appeals Court has ruled that the town violated the law when it set up a parking overlay district. 

The Appeals Court ruled that the town passed a measure for the district outside the time frame they should have.

The overlay district basically would allow a commercial parking lot as a matter of right. 

Barnstable’s only remaining appeal would be before the State Supreme Court.
