I moved my car for street cleaning, but my street was not plowed.

After a snow emergency has been ended, the City requires that cars be moved during regularly scheduled street cleaning days. This is done in order to enable the City to clear snow from parking lanes to free up more parking. Alternate side parking regulations only last for one hour on most streets, and since snow removal is a much more time and labor-intensive process than street sweeping, the City will attempt to clear snow from as many blocks as possible, but may not be able to reach all streets during the first street sweeping day. Unfortunately, cars that remain parked will delay the ability to clear parking lanes, so we ask for everyone’s participation so we can restore parking as quickly as possible.
