City calls Stage 1 Snow Condition
Under the City’s snow removal plan, officials can call for a Stage 1 snow condition when there is at least 2 inches of snow on the ground and four or more in the forecast. A Stage 2 condition, which includes a full-City plow of all arterial and residential streets, is triggered when there are six inches of snow on the ground and more anticipated.
Restricting parking during snow removal efforts allows plow drivers to clear away more snow, widening the area available for vehicles and generally improving driveability. In the residential areas, parking on one side of the street also allows plow drivers to move away from the curb, reducing the amount of snow and ice that ends up on sidewalks and at the end of driveways.
