28 New Snow Emergency Streets Brings Greenwich’s Total to 88

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 6.17.58 PMWith the recent winter storms, residents and merchants should be aware of the parking restrictions in the Town of Greenwich. During severe snow events, the Board of Selectman has the option to declare a State of Emergency and if the Board decides to declare an emergency; a parking ban is immediately enacted. Once a parking ban is enacted, the declaration prohibits motor vehicle owners from parking their vehicles on designated snow emergency streets.

Motorists should seek parking alternatives to the Town’s 88 Snow Emergency Streets. Park your car on a street that is not designated a snow emergency street or use a municipal parking lot, with the exception of Town Hall.

Cars found parked on a snow emergency street during an enacted parking ban may be ticketed or possibly towed for the duration of the ban.
