The City does not declare snow emergencies. To prevent obstructions during ongoing ice control operations, parking is prohibited on public streets and alleys November 1 to March 31 from 2 to 6 am daily. Parking is prohibited on public streets after a snowfall of at least 2 inches until snow has stopped falling and the street has been plowed to the curb (or edge of the street if there is no curb).
During a snowfall of 2 inches or more, no on-street parking is allowed until the street has been plowed curb-to-curb. This includes contractors. The parking restriction is in effect to allow plow operators to clear the entire street of snow so the street can be returned to normal winter conditions as quickly as possible. Vehicles parked on the street not only hinder this process, they also reduce the efficiency of the plow trucks.
