About Somerville Climate Forward

For Winter 2018/19, It’s a Park EVEN Snow Season; Also, Parking Will No Longer be Allowed in School Lots During Snow Emergencies

As snow season approaches, the City of Somerville reminds all residents that for the winter season 2018-2019, the side of the street where snow emergency parking is allowed is the even side. The City’s snow removal policy for public streets requires that residents park only on one designated side of the street during snow emergencies (unless otherwise posted). One-sided parking is needed to allow plows to push snow to the other side of the street to ensure safe passage for emergency vehicles and others.
