NEW HAVEN TO IMPLEMENT PARKING BAN BEGINNING AT 10PM TONIGHT
(12/13/2007) NEW HAVEN- Due to the weather, a parking ban will go into effect on New Haven streets at 10 p.m. this evening continuing through 6 a.m. tomorrow. The ban prohibits parking on streets posted as snow emergency routes and on all downtown streets. The ban allows streets to be clear so that the Department of Public Works can effectively remove snow. Cars parking in violation of the ban may be ticketed and/or towed.
Please note that parking garages and off-street parking lots downtown are still open during snow emergencies. Residents are encouraged to use these facilities as an alternative to parking on the street. In residential areas, residents are asked not to park on the odd numbered-side of the street so that snow plows can clear the street to the curb. Mayor John DeStefano, Jr. urges the public’s cooperation in complying with the parking ban in order to assist the City’s plowing operations.
The New Haven Free Public Library will close at 5 p.m. today instead of it’s normal 8 p.m. closing time because of the inclement weather. However, Downtown restaurants and shops remain open for business. The International Festival of Arts and Ideas “Unsilent Night” event will still begin at 5:30 p.m. today. All City streets with the exception of Center Street have re-opened for pedestrian and motor vehicle traffic.
