Off-Street Parking Lots (for Snow Emergencies)

The municipal and school parking lots listed below are available to residents during snow emergencies. Cars that park in municipal or school lots must be moved within two hours of the end of the emergency. Please only move your car to a school or municipal lot if you have a flexible schedule and are able to move your car at any time with a two-hour notice.
