Snow Emergency Declared Starting 1 p.m. Jan. 25 Due to Winter Storm; On-Street Parking Prohibited
With hazardous weather, including a significant winter storm and 6 to 12 inches of snow, North Liberty has declared a snow emergency, prohibiting on-street parking, beginning Monday, Jan. 25, 2021, at 1 p.m. The prohibition is set to expire on Tuesday, Jan. 26, at 5 p.m., but may be extended based on conditions.
Parking on streets is not permitted until the snow emergency declaration has been lifted. Forecasts predict significant winter weather, and crews will be working to clear roads through the snowfall. During the storm, roads may be slick or impassable; drivers are urged to avoid travel if possible.
Prohibiting on-street parking during snow emergencies ensures city streets are clear for effective snow removal. Any vehicles in violation of the ordinance may be ticketed and towed without notice. Each 12-hour period that a vehicle is parked or remains on any public street in violation of this ordinance constitutes a separate and distinct offense.
Off-street parking for those without available garage, driveway or other paved parking space is available in the south lot at the North Liberty Community Center, 520 W. Cherry Street, closest to the building, Quail Ridge Park, 931 W. Zeller Street, Centennial Park, 1565 St. Andrews Drive, and Penn Meadows Park, 310 N. Dubuque Street, in both north and south parking lots.
Additionally, residents are reminded they are required to clear their sidewalks within 48 hours of a snowfall, and asked to consider clearing around storm drains, to help prevent ice dams, and fire hydrants, to allow critical unimpeded access in the event of a fire.
