All vehicles must be parked in allowable locations, including: private driveways or parking lots owned by the vehicle owner or with permission of the owner; municipal lots; or on the appropriate side of the street. It can be confusing if one side of your street doesn't typically allow parking. However, during snow emergencies, any pre-existing parking restrictions which designate or prohibit parking on a particular side of the street are temporarily superseded by snow emergency alternate side of the street parking restrictions. Vehicles still may not block driveways or fire hydrants.
While the City offers snow emergency alternate side parking, individuals with access to off-street parking are strongly encouraged to move their vehicles off of the street to allow for the quickest and most effective clearing of snow.
Duration of Snow Emergency
Snow emergencies and related parking restrictions are typically in effect for at least two days in order for the Department of Public Works to clear both sides of the street. You must adhere to these parking restrictions and move your vehicle, regardless of whether or not the weather has improved or the street looks clear. Parking restrictions may be lifted sooner if the City determines it to be safe to do so. In this event, a separate alert will be sent announcing the change to parking restrictions.
