Snow Emergency Notifications

Snow Emergency Parking

Upon declaration of a Snow Emergency, vehicles must be removed from the City streets.  Snow Emergencies take effect from the time determined by the Director. Typically, 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Earlier start times and later end times may be set during unusually heavy storms.  Any vehicle parked in violation of a Snow Emergency Declaration will be removed and impounded. A Snow Emergency is called to allow City crews to plow the full width of the streets, allowing access for emergency vehicles and parking.

The City Parking Authority has two locations available for parking during snow emergencies.

Victory Parking Garage
  • Located on the corner of Amherst & Chestnut
  • Snow Emergency use from 8:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. only*

Pearl Street Parking
  • Located on Orange St between Pearl & Chestnut
  • Snow Emergency use  from 8:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. only*
  • *Subject to parking fees of $0.75 per hour outside Snow Emergency times. *Unauthorized vehicles outside of these times are also subject to parking violations.

During snow emergencies, snow emergency beacons flash at various traffic intersections throughout the City.  Snow emergencies are also announced on local news and radio stations but feel free to call the Department of Public Works as 603-624-6444.

Any vehicle parked in violation of a Snow Emergency Declaration will be towed and impounded.  The City’s impound lot is located in the Derryfield Park off of Bridge Street.   In order to recover an impounded vehicle, the owner will be required to present proof of ownership and pay $110 (cash only) within 24 hours.  Vehicles not recovered within 24 hours will be subject to additional storage fees.
