Winter Parking Ban Information

Winter Parking Ban November 1, 2016 - April 15, 2017

What is it? The winter parking ban is a seasonal status change on town streets and lots that prohibits parking on the public right of way to facilitate snow removal and winter street maintenance operations. Even a few illegally parked cars slows down the snow removal or cleaning process and ultimately costs us all more money.

 

When is it in effect? The winter parking ban is in effect from November 1 – April 15, 2AM-7AM of every year. The ban is in effect regardless of weather conditions.

 

Why do we need it? The winter parking ban is in place because of the potential for snowfall in the region. Snow can only efficiently and cost effectively be cleared at night from lots and streets that are empty of cars.  After a storm, public works crews spend up to a week hauling snow and laying gravel to keep our streets in good condition. It is neither safe nor efficient for cars to be parked on the street while this work is being completed.

 

SOLUTIONS: Please park off of the street or in the town parking structure on Millward Avenue between the hours of 2:00 AM-7:00 AM.

 

Thank you for your cooperation!  The Jackson Police Department
