Snow Streets are designated throughout the City. Designated snow streets are marked with blue and white signs. Any vehicle parked on a snow street must be removed within two hours after a Snow Emergency is declared. Snow Emergencies are typically called for when the City receives 2 inches (or more) of snow. Vehicles parked in violation of snow regulations are subject to towing at the owner's expense and/or a citation.
- If a Snow Emergency is Declared from 7 am to 9 pm, vehicles parked on a snow street must be removed within 2 hours after declaration.
- If a Snow Emergency is Declared from 9 pm to 7 am, vehicles parked on a snow street must be removed by 9 am.

Snow Emergency Notification
When a snow emergency is declared, notification is sent out many different ways. Residents should monitor the local news and news papers and are encouraged to sign up for:
- eNews: email notification is sent through the City's weekly eNews distribution list; sign-up is free and easy
- Text Alerts: sign up for CodeRED alerts
- Social Media: follow the City's Facebook page and the City on Twitter; when a snow emergency is declared, notification will be posted to all platforms
Even if your street is not listed as a Snow Street, parking your vehicle off the street allows for a more efficient plowing process, helping crews remove the snow from the entire street curb to curb. This is especially important when the City is receiving many snow storms in succession.
