What is a "snow emergency"?

It could be when your snow blower doesn't start. However, officially, a Declared Snow Emergency is when snow accumulates to 3" or more and all the streets in the downtown Snow Emergency Zone must be plowed. Alternate side parking rules in the Snow Emergency Zone must be followed for a minimum of the next two nights. A Snow Emergency will always be declared prior to 9 pm if it is to take effect that night. parking winter
