Odd Side Parking

5 Feb

An update from the city:

Due to the continued narrowing of streets resulting from large amounts of snowfall this year, the city will begin asking residents today to voluntarily park only on the odd sides of city streets. By parking on one side of the street only, emergency vehicles, plow trucks, busses and other large vehicles will be able to more easily navigate streets. We last instituted such a voluntary ban in 2012, and we saw significant compliance throughout the city.

  • We’re asking community members to limit their parking to the odd sides of the street only for the remainder of the winter season (the side where addresses end in odd numbers)
  • The odd side is usually the east or south side of a street
  • The parking ban could become mandatory (resulting in ticketing and towing) if community members do not comply
  • We understand that this may create an inconvenience for some residents and businesses, but the voluntary ban helps ensure the safety of our community
  • The ban will remain in place for the remainder of the winter season
  • During snow events, regular parking ban rules will still apply (parking is banned anytime snowfall accumulation reaches 3 inches until your street is plowed to the curb). Note: “To the curb” may be a snow bank this season.
  • If residents need more information, would like to speak to someone or report issues on certain streets, please forward them to the Fire Department at 952-924-2595.
