Coming into the City there are signs posted on all major roads informing residents and visitors that no parking is allowed on City streets or in City parking lots between 3 am and 5 am. This is to assist the various municipal departments in snowplowing, street sweeping, and other maintenance chores.

You can find other parking violations in the City’s Code of Ordinances Chapter 205, Article III, Section 18.
The odd-even, overnight, on-street parking ordinance (Section 42- 1- 42-4, Article I) takes effect seasonally, December 1 - March 31, and during any declared snow emergencies. It is common for weather conditions between December 1 and March 31 to include snowfalls that require the plowing of city streets. Often times plowing is needed all the way to curb to alleviate ice build-up, flooding, and other unsafe conditions. Plowing to the curbs is not possible when cars are parked on the street along the curb. The city recognizes on-street parking is important in some circumstances. In balancing these competing needs, the city allows for parking on only one side of the street during overnight hours December through March, and during any declared snow emergencies with the allowed parking alternating on a daily basis to enable snowplowing of both sides of the street.
Park on the side of the street that corresponds with the day's date, starting at 7 PM the day before (Click here for a full parking calendar):
NO PARKING and other traffic signs remain in effect and apply at all times.
