Winter Parking Regulations: The current City ordinance puts odd/even parking controls into effect from November 1 through April 1 throughout the City. All people will be required to park their vehicles on the odd numbered side of the street on odd dates and even numbered side of the street on even dates.
Note: The time between 7 p.m. and midnight of each day is a switchover timewhen vehicles can be parked on either side of the street.
These parking controls apply whether or not any snow has fallen. These parking regulations improve the City's efficiency in removing snow and eliminates confusion regarding snow emergencies and snow emergency routes.
