Winter Parking

*Overnight Parking is allowed only on the EVEN side of the street for the month of APRIL.

To facilitate snow removal and emergency vehicle access, special parking restrictions are in effect from December 1 through April 15, and at any time of the year when a snow emergency is declared.

Overnight Odd/Even Parking Restrictions

Overnight parking restrictions, in effect from 1:00 am to 6:00 am every morning, commence December 1 of each year and last through April 15.  Please note the following rules:

  • Where parking is normally allowed on both sides of the street, parking is permitted only on the even-numbered side of the street during even-numbered months (i.e., December and February) and only on the odd-numbered side of the street during odd-numbered months (i.e., January and March)
  • Where parking is normally allowed only on one side of the street, parking continues to be allowed on that side every night (i.e., there are no overnight restrictions)

Upon declaration of a snow emergency, vehicles must be removed from both sides of all City streets.  Typically, snow emergencies are in effect from 10:00 pm to 6:00 am, but these hours may be expanded during heavy storms.  Any vehicle in violation will be removed and impounded.
