Neal Meyer, traffic safety officer with the Quincy Police Department, said he hasn’t been advised that anyone has been given permission to park on that sidewalk. If employees are parking on the sidewalk, Meyer said they would be in violation of a city ordinance and subject to a notice of violation.

If a citizen sees this violation, they are encouraged to report it to the non-emergency number (222-9360) at the 911 center.

    am not even sure that would be parking on the sidewalk as the “sidewalk” is right next to the building more of a private drive and u can see there is still a sidewalk to use before you would be walking in the street

    I agree with Jeff. In this pic the sidewalk is still usable. At least In this example it’s a non-issue. Also Quincy needs to encourage local businesses. Not nitpick and push them out of town. Plus there are much bigger issues to worry about.
