On-street parking in North Liberty prohibited starting at noon Friday due to impending snow storm

(City of North Liberty news release)

With a winter storm warning and the expectation of heavy snow, North Liberty will prohibit on-street parking beginning Friday, Jan. 14, 2022, at noon. The prohibition is set to expire on Saturday, Jan. 15, at noon.

Parking on streets is not permitted until the snow emergency declaration has been lifted. Forecasts suggest the winter weather may impact travel, and crews will be working to clear roads through the snowfall. During the storm, roads may be slick or impassable.

Prohibiting on-street parking during snow emergencies ensures city streets are clear for effective snow removal. Any vehicles in violation of the ordinance may be ticketed and towed without notice. Each 12-hour period that a vehicle is parked or remains on any public street in violation of this ordinance constitutes a separate and distinct offense.

Off-street parking, for those without available garage, driveway or other paved parking space, is available in the southern parking lot, near the gazebo, at Penn Meadows Park, 310 N. Dubuque Street, which the Parks Department prioritizes clearing.

Additionally, residents are reminded they are required to clear their sidewalks within 48 hours of a snowfall, and asked to consider clearing around storm drains, to help prevent ice dams, and fire hydrants, to allow critical unimpeded access in the event of a fire.
