During the COVID19 Pandemic we ask that you follow the State guidelines:

  • All residents are REQUIRED to cover their face when they cannot maintain six feet of social distance in public
  • All residents are advised to wash their hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soapy water
  • All residents are advised to be vigilant, monitor for symptoms and stay home if you feel sick
  • People over the age of 65 and people who have underlying health conditions – who are at high risk for COVID-19 – should continue to stay home except for essential errands such as going to the grocery store and to attend to healthcare needs
  • All residents are advised to leave home only for healthcare, worship and permitted work, shopping, and activities
  • When going to the pharmacy ask if you can fill your prescriptions for 90 days if possible; for some medications this is not allowed. If you are at high-risk, try to use a mail-order service
  • Parents should limit play dates for children
  • Use remote modes of communication like phone or video chat instead of visiting friends or family who are high risk for COVID-19

QHA PARKING POLICY

WILL BE ENFORCED IN THE SNUG HARBOR FAMILY DEVELOPMENT EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2019

The Quincy Housing Authority has adopted a new parking policy. Enforcement of the new parking policy in your development will begin January 1, 2019. This means, any tenant who wishes to park their vehicle on QHA property at Snug Harbor between the hours of 12:00 am and 6:00 am must have a valid parking permit (including all tenants with Handicap placards or license plates). The permit, in the form of a sticker must be permanently affixed to the inside lower corner of the driver side (left side) of the listed vehicle’s front windshield. For motorcycles, owners must affix the sticker to the fork on the operators left side. The parking permit (sticker) is NOT transferable. Any vehicle that is parked on QHA property between the hours of 12:00 am and 6:00 am without a valid parking sticker as of January 1, 2019 will be towed at the owner’s expense by Ayer’s Towing 440B E. Squantum Quincy MA. Phone # 617-328-0056.

If you have not yet done so, you must register your vehicle with your Property Manager as soon as possible. The Property Manager’s office is located at our Support Services Department, 26 Figurehead Lane in Germantown. In order to obtain a parking permit, you will be required to provide the Manager with a valid Mass. Driver’s license, and a copy of the vehicle registration. (Please note, the vehicle must be registered in the resident’s name.)

Further, if you are in need of a temporary permit, please see your property manager. A temporary permit may be issued to a resident in good standing on a case by case basis. Please note, parking on the street during winter months could lead to towing during snow storms. Please contact the City of Quincy for more information.

If you have any questions concerning this matter, please do not hesitate to contact your Property Manager. Joanne Roche can be reached at 617-847-4350 ext. 404 and Kathleen Porrazzo can be reached at 617-847-4350 ext. 402.
