banHow it works...

If it snows 3 or more inches, a snow emergency will be declared and a special parking ban will be implimented.  When the ban is implimented:

1. On the day the Snow Emergency is declared, parking will be restricted to the side of the street based on the date.  For example if it is December 11th (an odd date) you should park on the side of the street with odd numbered addresses.  Conversely, if the Snow Emergency is declared on December 12th (an even date), you should park on the side of the street with even numbers.

2. On the day following you should park on the opposite side of the street. This will ensure streets will be plowed from curb to curb over the two day period

After any such emergency shall have been declared, it shall be unlawful during the
period of such emergency for any person to park any type of motor vehicle or to allow
the same to remain parked on the following streets between the hours of 9 p.m. and
6:00 a.m.:

Wyoming Avenue (SR 0011)
Welles Street
River Street (Rutter to Wyoming Avenue)
Rutter Ave (River to Welles)
Slocum Street
Shoemaker Street
Dennison Street
Murray Street (Slocum to Dennison)

If you violate the snow emergency parking ban when it has been activated, your vehicle may be ticketed and towed.
