and if, snow accumulation exceeds 2 inches or more, the City of Cleveland
Director of Public Safety may enact a Snow Emergency Parking Ban. The ban
allows plows sufficient time to remove snow and ice and move through city
streets at a good pace. When a snow ban goes into effect, stopping, standing,
and parking of vehicles will be restricted and prohibited on City streets with
posted red and white signs.
the parking ban begins, it will continue until further notice. Anyone who fails
to comply will be ticketed and towed. Additionally, the City of Cleveland may
request voluntary compliance during periods of snow from residents who are
parked in areas that do not have parking bans. This will ensure that plows can
service the entire width of the street, curb-to-curb, making the street clearer
and safer and eliminating snow and ice build-up around parked cars.
bans are designated on streets that are identified as necessary thoroughfares
for the transportation of food, fuel, supplies, medical care, health
emergencies, and fire and police protection.
