Emergency Parking Ban

No Parking signs

During substantial storms, the City may declare a Snow Emergency, and may prohibit parking/ tow vehicles on streets signed “No Parking during Snow Emergency.” 

When a snow emergency is declared information is available as soon as possible at 617-349-4700, posted on the City's homepage, and on 22-CityView.  

You can also sign up for CodeRed through the City's homepage to get a text message to your cell phone or an E-mail snow emergency alert.

A list and map of streets where parking is prohibited during a snow emergency is available on the Traffic Department's website. The website also has information on parking garages that provide free parking during a declared snow emergency.
