Evanston residents looking for a place to put their cars tonight during the second night of the snow route parking ban, or tomorrow and Friday during the daytime snow emergency alternate-side parking dance on side streets now have some additional options.

In addition to the city’s three downtown parking garages — which are offering free parking through 12:01 a.m. Saturday morning — and which still were only 60 percent full as of late this afternoon, the city has announced the following options:

For tonight only, residents in south Evanston can park their cars on the top level of the St. Francis Hospital parking deck. The cars must be removed by 8 a.m. Thursday.

During the day Thursday, folks living near Oakton, King Lab, Haven, Chute and Kingsley schools and the District 65 administration building can park in the lots of those school buildings from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Vehicles must be in the lots and parked by 9 a.m.

  1. NU [and other parking lots] during emergency

    People were looking for places to park during plowing days.

    I saw NU Ryan Field’s lots were plowed by at least 5 PM.  I called NU Police [no other NU numbers even had outgoing messages] to ask if residents could park in the lots.  They did not know.

    Good public relation would be for NU [esp. Ryan] and others who have lots not being used on the emergency days, to open up their lots and post notices.  

    I thought we learned that after the 79 storm.

    1. But plowing is durning the day

      Parking at night at Ryan is good but the emergency plowing of side streets is during the day.

      1. I guess parking off business

        I guess parking off business is hours is not enough (get real!). You can go to the parking office and buy a visitor parking tag for $10 — parking during business hours is not free, not even for those of us who work at Northwestern.

  2. Parking at Evanston Plaza

       Parking in the Evanston Plaza lot will be allowed until Saturday . Residents urged to not park in the Dominicks lot or in the front of the plaza facing Dodge- but to stay in the northwest part of the lot.
