Snow Emergency Parking Rules for 2019

Looks like snow and ice are coming our way this weekend. Just a friendly reminder of the Snow Emergency Parking Rules for 2019

Residents may park on the even numbered side of non-emergency neighborhood streets, but should always park in driveways if available. Parking is prohibited on all designated emergency arteries. A complete list of emergency arteries can be found here.

Residents on side streets posted permanently as one-side parking should park on the side always allowed.

Cars parked in violation of emergency rules or impede snow plowing operations pose a public safety risk, and WILL BE TOWED. Regardless of parking rules, vehicles determined to be in obstruction of snow removal or emergency vehicles are subject to towing if not moved.
For assistance, residents can use the City’s snow request application at or call the DPW's snow operation hotline at (617) 376-1927. Please use this number if you have a question or concern about plowing and/or sanding.

For flood-related assistance, call (617) 376-1910. Residents in coastal areas should take appropriate precautions and monitor weather reports. ALWAYS call 911 in an emergency.
