The City of Evanston has declared a snow emergency today, which probably shouldn’t surprise you if you’ve looked out the window.

Under the snow emergency rules, parking is prohibited on the odd-numbered sides of residential streets between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. to allow snow plows to clean that side of the street. Even-numbered sides of residential streets will be cleaned on Saturday. Violators are subject to ticketing and towing.

A snow route parking ban will be in effect beginning at 11 p.m. today, continuing through 6 a.m. Saturday. During that time period, parking is prohibited on all snow routes. These are the major streets in town and are marked with snow route signs. Violators are subject to ticketing and towing.

Evanston Township High School has delayed the opening of school today until 9:40 a.m., but District 65 reports no school closings.
