Last updated 3/2/15, 9:45 a.m.

  • The parking ban remains in effect, and is being lifted on a rolling basis (click here for a list of streets where it has been lifted). Even if the ban has been lifted on your street, plows working the storm need 12 feet of clearance between parked cars. If there is not 12 feet of clearance, in most cases the car on the even side will be towed (unless otherwise posted). Click here for more information.
