NEW HAVEN STORM PREPARATION UNDERWAY
(2/12/2014) New Haven – The city’s three senior centers will be closed tomorrow as a result of a weather forecast that includes an accumulation of heavy, wet snow beginning overnight tonight, a changeover to rain sometime tomorrow, high winds, and high tides. Warming centers are available at the city’s public libraries within normal operating hours and the city’s homeless shelters are open.
Any announcement to be made by New Haven Public Schools about Thursday’s operations will be made after 7:00 p.m. Wednesday; Mayor Toni Harp said city government will be open for business as usual Thursday, barring unforeseen circumstances.
A downtown parking ban is set to begin at midnight Thursday night until 6:00 a.m. Friday; the ban allows public works crews easier access for snow clearance. The downtown parking ban encompasses all streets within the area bounded by Howe Street, Tower Parkway, Grove Street, State Street and North Frontage Road. Cars that remain parked on downtown streets during the parking ban are subject to ticketing and towing.
An outright parking ban will also be in effect those hours for posted snow routes; overnight parking will be available to residents in the Temple Street and Crown Street garages for three dollars per night. Free overnight parking will be available at the Granite Square garage. No parking ban is yet anticipated for the city’s residential areas.
Residents are reminded that parking is prohibited within 25 feet of fire hydrants, intersections, and city bus stops.
