What is a Snow Emergency?

When a significant amount of snow falls, the City of Minneapolis declares a Snow Emergency to remove accumulating snow from the full width of City streets.

Snow Emergencies are a set of predefined parking regulations that allow crews to completely clear streets of accumulating snow. In order to be plowed completely, streets must be free of parked vehicles.

A Snow Emergency will be declared no later than 6 p.m. on any given day to allow sufficient time to notify residents to move their vehicles to allow for the most efficient clearing of snow from the streets.
