Snow Emergency Parking Information - Community Advisory

If a snow emergency is declared, cars should not park on Maple Avenue, as it is a Snow Emergency Route. To help City crews effectively plow the streets, please park in driveways or parking lots, if possible. For residents on streets with parking allowed on both sides, residents are asked to park on the even numbered side of the street (since today is an even numbered day), then park on the odd side of the street tomorrow.

To assist with pedestrian safety, property owners are reminded to keep public sidewalks free from snow and ice.
