Evanston officials say it may take another four days to finish clearing snow from side streets after last week’s blizzard. So they’re asking residents to voluntarily follow daytime alternate side parking restrictions through Thursday.

Evanston officials say it may take another four days to finish clearing snow from side streets after last week’s blizzard. So they’re asking residents to voluntarily follow daytime alternate side parking restrictions through Thursday.

That means no parking from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the even-numbered side of the street on even-numbered days, and no parking on the odd-numbered side of the street on odd-numbered days.

In addition, officials say signs imposing special parking restrictions may be posted in problem areas, and failing to comply with those signs may lead to vehicles being ticketed and towed.

With regular refuse and recycling collections resuming today, city staff is also asking residents to clear a path so workers can get to refuse and recycling carts.

  1. Has anyone actually been ticketed for snow parking?

    On our street the parking restrictions have been willfully violated by many. And I have yet to see the cops actually ticket violators. If they didn't enforce the restrictions when they were in force, I have little faith that they will see much voluntary compliance.
