The City of Evanston has declared a Snow Emergency between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. for both Wednesday, March 6 and Thursday, March 7, 2013. Snow Emergencies apply to streets with parking on both sides which are not posted as snow routes.
Parking is NOT allowed on the even-numbered sides of the street on Wednesday, March 6; vehicles must be parked on the odd-numbered side of the street.
Parking is NOT allowed on the odd-numbered sides of the street on Thursday, March 7; vehicles must be parked on the even-numbered side of the street.
The city’s emergency sirens will sound at 7:15 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. on Snow Emergency Days.
Cars parked illegally during Snow Emergencies are subject to a $35 ticket and a towing fine of $100.
When community members move their cars to nearby side streets, they are reminded to follow the snow clearing regulations for that side street.
Most streets with parking on one side only now have permanent “ODD date” or “EVEN date” signs that allow them to be plowed during snow emergencies.
