 Snow Emergency Reminder

  1. A snow emergency prohibits people from parking cars in the square. It also prohibits people from parking on one side of any other designated snow emergency route for the duration of the emergency. On odd dates it is the odd side of the street, even dates the even side of the street.
  2. Vehicles parked in violation can be ticketed and towed.
  3. The designation also allows the police to ticket people who get stuck on Snow Emergency Routes whose vehicles do not have snow tires or chains.
  4. A snow emergency does not mean people cannot be out on the roads and is not the same as a State of Emergency.
  5. A map showing snow emergency routes can be found here. Snow Emergency Route Map
