Do you park on a snow route? Visit to view a map of Snow Routes, or type in your address into the interactive web map to see if your address is along a snow route.

There is NO PARKING on designated snow routes whenever snow accumulates more than 2 inches on the roadway; any vehicle parked on a designated snow route may be removed from the roadway. The fine for failing to move a vehicle from a snow route is $25 - $50 plus towing and storage charges.

By removing vehicles from snow routes, citizens enable plows to quickly and efficiently make arterial streets passable.

Citizens who will be travelling out of town for extended periods of time are encouraged to utilize off-street parking in lieu of leaving cars parked on the street.
