2020 - 2021 Student Parking
Unfortunately, we cannot recommend additional locations to park for those who do not have a spot.
Please see Bedford Town Ordinance 2017-02, Chapter 262- Vehicles and Traffic, Section 8: Parking on Town Property available on the town website at www.bedfordnh.org.
First Wave of 2020-2021 Student Town Parking Pass Issuance:
Students who entered the BHS lottery, and answered YES to having a valid NH license by August 25th and received communication from the school that they received a town parking spot via lottery may come into the Town office to purchase their parking pass beginning July 13, 2020. Town parking passes cost $125 and can be paid by cash, check or credit card. Credit cards are subject to a 2.95% fee and the card holder must be present. A returned check that remains unpaid will result in loss of the parking pass.
Students have until the close of business on August 25, 2020 to pick up their Town pass before it becomes available to another student.
Second Wave of 2020-2021 Student Town Parking Pass Issuance:
There are currently 46 unassigned spots that will be assigned via a second lottery to Juniors who entered the BHS lottery, answered MAYBE to having their license by the start of school and have emailed a picture of their license to the school by August 3rd. The second wave of parking passes may be picked up in early August after those students receive communication from the school indicating that there is a spot available to them.
Third Wave of 2020-2021 Student Town Parking Pass Issuance:
IF there are less than 46 students eligible for the second wave of parking pass issuance on August 3rd, then the Town will conduct a lottery for the remaining spots in the pool lot on Monday, August 10th.
Instructions to be considered for the August 10th lottery should spots become available:
By August 7th, send a picture of your drivers license to: NewMVPlate@BedfordNH.org with the subject line “AUGUST 10TH TOWN PARKING PASS LOTTERY”
Be sure to include your full name and phone number in the body of the email. Communication from the Town will go out in the days following the August 7th lottery that will either instruct the winners to pick up their passes by August 25th or notify students that they have not received a spot.
Fourth Wave of 2020-2021 Student Town Parking Pass Issuance:
Instructions to be considered for the FINAL 2020-2021 lottery to assign unclaimed spots:
By August 26th, send a picture of your drivers license to: NewMVPlate@BedfordNH.org with the subject line “AUGUST 27TH TOWN PARKING PASS LOTTERY”
Be sure to include your full name and phone number in the body of the email. Communications from the Town regarding the lottery results will go out to students immediately following the lottery.

Once a pass is issued, no changes (including lot or spot) can be made.
