Should the Board… declare a Snow Emergency, the following parking restrictions shall go into effect from declaration until 24 hours after last snowfall or revoked:
Ordinance 2016-03 now allows an exception to park on your grass during a “snow emergency” should you not have enough room in your driveway for all your vehicles. When shoveling out your vehicle, driveway or sidewalk, it is important not to put the snow into the street. Please keep the snow piled on your property—this will ensure proper snow removal and maximize street safety for both our Public Works Crew and residents alike.
Ordinance 2016-02 stipulates the following restrictions during a snow emergency event:
- No parking on the even numbered side of Spring Branch Drive.
- Parking of vehicles on grass shall be permitted for the duration of the snow emergency.
- Any vehicle in violation of this section may be ticketed as “Parked in a no-parking zone” and shall be impounded or moved if deemed necessary for snow removal operations.
Parking: Please do not park on the streets! Move vehicles into driveways or on grass and off the streets so that Town plow crews can effectively clear the streets of all snow.
Shoveling Snow: Also, when shoveling out your vehicle, driveway or sidewalk, it is important not to put the snow into the street. Please keep the snow piled on your property—this will ensure proper snow removal and maximize street safety for both our Public Works crew and residents alike.
