Parking ban imposed

The following notice was released by the city just before noon Friday:

EFFECTIVE: AT MIDNIGHT ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2008,
AN ON-STREET PARKING BAN IS IMPOSED IN NEW HAVEN AS FOLLOWS:

1. NO PARKING ON STREETS POSTED AS SNOW EMERGENCY ROUTES

2. NO PARKING ON STREETS DOWNTOWN

Mayor John DeStefano, Jr. has declared a snow emergency for snow
removal purposes and has announced the following on-street parking
bans:

(1.) Effective at Midnight on Friday Feb. 22, 2008 PARKING BAN
IMPOSED on all major arterial streets that are posted as emergency snow
routes.

(2.) Effective at Midnight on Friday Feb. 22, 1008, PARKING BAN
IMPOSED on streets in the Downtown Area (all streets within the area
bounded by Howe Street, Tower Parkway, Grove Street, State Street and
North Frontage Road).

Cars parking in violation of the parking ban may be ticketed and/or
towed.

Please note: 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 encouraged NOT to park on the odd
numbered side of the street (numbers ending in 1,3,5,7,9) so that snow
plows can clear the street to the curb. It is also helpful if cars
don't park within 25 feet of any intersection so the plows can push
snow to the curb and not out into the intersection.

The Parking Ban expires at 7:00 A.M. on Saturday Feb. 23,
2008.

DeStefano urges the public's cooperation in complying
with the parking ban in order to assist the city's plowing operations.
