Snow Emergency Parking Rules

Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3

Day 1 - 9 p.m. to 8 a.m. (overnight)

Do not park on either side of the street with the red sign: Snow Emergency Route. Snow plows will clear those streets first.

A Snow Emergency will be declared no later than 6 p.m. on any given day. At 9 p.m. on that day, Snow Emergency parking rules begin.

Park on either side of non-Snow Emergency routes (these streets DO NOT have the red sign: Snow Emergency Route).

Snow Emergency Day 1: No parking on Snow Emergency Routes

After a street is fully plowed, feel free to park there, even if Snow Emergency parking rules are still in effect. Fully plowed means the street is completely cleared and plowed as wide as possible. Plows may come through more than once, so make sure that it is fully plowed as wide as possible before parking.
