Evanston’s Public Works Department is asking that residents voluntarily observe the city’s snow emergency parking restrictions today and Thursday.

Update 9:50 a.m.: Several folks hadn’t gotten the word yet about not parking today on what’s the right side of the street in this photo looking east on on Brummel Street east of Ridge Avenue taken around 8 a.m.

Residents are asked to avoid parking on the even-numbered side of residential streets today and avoid parking on the odd side on Thursday  between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.

But by a little after 9:30 a.m., word had gotten around and the south side of the this block was clear. Not so for the next block east, though. (Mike Perlman photos)

Enforcement measures such as towing or ticketing will not take place with this voluntary observance of the snow emergency parking measures, but officials say the voluntary compliance will greatly help crews clear the more than four inches of snow that fell on Tuesday from residential streets.
