Mayor Richard David on Monday morning announced residents must start to comply with alternate side parking rules.
The regulations usually take effect on December 1. But with the heavy snowfall since Sunday, the mayor said the rules will take effect early. They are scheduled to be in effect through March 15.
David said motorists are "strongly encouraged" to move vehicles off streets and into driveways or lots at city parks to allow public works crews to keep streets clear.
- On even calendar days, park on the even side of the street until 5:00 p.m.
- On odd calendar days, park on the odd side of the street until 5:00 p.m.
- The change in parking occurs each day at 5:00 p.m. For example, since Nov. 22 is an even day, vehicles must be moved to the even side of the street at 5:00 p.m. Residents should think, “park for tomorrow.”
- Rules are in effect 24 hours per day.
- Alternate side parking rules apply to all City streets, including those with parking on only one side.
- Streets with no parking on both sides of street remain no parking zones on both sides of the street. In these cases, alternate side parking does not apply.
- Rules do not apply for metered parking.
