Greenwich Selectmen Declare Snow Emergency Beginning 8pm Wednesday

Greenwich Board of Selectmen have declared a snow emergency, which prohibits on-street parking on designated snow emergency routes* beginning at 8:00 pm
Wednesday night.

The parking ban will enable Dept of Public Works crews and contractors to effectively clear Town roadways.

Residents are advised to park their vehicles in their driveways or in their yards.

Residents also may use municipal parking lots to park their vehicles, according to the
Department of Public Works.

The snow emergency will remain in effect until the Board of Selectmen declare the
snow emergency is over.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning with snow expected  to begin falling during the early morning hours of Thursday (January 4), continuing through Thursday morning and afternoon.

Near blizzard-like conditions also can be expected with winds of at least 35 mph.

“We have the snow crews with the equipment in place with salt and sand at the ready. We are good to go and to tackle the season’s first major storm,” said Greenwich First
Selectman Peter Tesei in a press release Wednesday afternoon.

The Town ordinance requires Greenwich property owners be responsible for keeping all
sidewalks along their property clear of snow and ice.

The Town of Greenwich prohibits plow contractors from pushing snow from driveways or parking lots onto Town streets because it is dangerous and impedes the Town’s
snow removal efforts.

If there is no other alternative to pushing snow into the street, the private plow driver must plow off the windrow left across the street by re-plowing until the road is safe.
