Evanston officials are asking city residents to try a new approach to after-the-storm parking this weekend.
Based on the amount of snow that's fallen, the progress of snow removal work and expected temperatures above freezing on Sunday — they aren't imposing alternate-side snow emergency parking regulations on residential streets for the weekend.
Instead they're asking residents to voluntarily park on primary routes during the day today to allow crews to clear both sides of residential streets today.
Public Works Director Suzette Robinson says crews expect to wrap up snow removal operations by early Sunday morning when temperatures are expected to reach nearly 40 degrees.
The clearing of snow around parking meters and in city parking lots will continue tonight.
The snow route parking ban in effect overnight from Friday to Saturday won't be repeated tonight.
