Emergency Snow Zone Parking Restrictions

The Streets and Operations Department has a plan for how we should deal with certain problematic streets where on-street parking during particularly heavy snowfalls have contributed to increasingly narrow and sometimes impassable roads.

Please see the Emergency Snow Zones maps on the Winter Street Operations page for more information.
