Off-Street Parking Lots (for Snow Emergencies)

The municipal parking lots listed below are available to residents during snow emergencies. Cars that park in municipal lots must be moved within two hours of the end of the emergency. Please only move your car to a municipal lot if you have a flexible schedule and are able to move your car at any time with a two-hour notice. Parking is not allowed in school lots during snow emergencies.

NOTE: Once a snow emergency has been lifted, vehicles must be moved within TWO HOURS from City lots, regardless of posted signage. Failure to do so may result in additional fines and towing.
