Snow Emergency Parking

A measurable snowfall means the Emergency Snow Removal Parking Plan goes into effect. After a two-inch snowfall, the Public Works Department may announce the following parking rules, seven days a week, including holidays:

  • Main streets designated as snow routes must be cleared of all parked cars. Violations are subject to a $100 fine.
  • Non-snow route streets allow parking between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. on the EVEN address side on EVEN days and ODD address side on ODD days.
  • Designated Commercial Parking areas follow the odd/even rule between midnight and 8 a.m. Signs are posted in these areas.

Snow parking restrictions do not apply to emergency vehicles, of course, and delivery vehicles are allowed to park up to 10 minutes. The Snow Emergency Removal Parking Plan does not override other parking regulations, however, such as time-limitations and prohibitions.
