On-street Parking Prohibited Beginning 9 p.m. Feb. 15, 2023
With a strong winter storm and heavy snow expected, North Liberty will prohibit on-street parking beginning Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 9 p.m. The prohibition is set to expire on Thursday, Feb. 16, at 9 p.m. Tickets will be issued to cars remaining parked on public roads during this snowstorm.
Parking on streets is not permitted until the snow emergency declaration has been lifted. Forecasts predict heavy 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 southern parking lot, near the gazebo, at Penn Meadows Park, 310 N. Dubuque St., and at the Community Center, 520 W. Cherry St., along the west side of the building, which the Parks Department prioritizes clearing.
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.
