Pawtucket Provides Locations and Rules for Snow Parking Ban

Pawtucket– With the incoming winter months, the City of Pawtucket has provided rules for a snow ban parking advisory that will take effect in the event of a snowstorm, including a list of public parking locations where residents may leave their vehicles while on-street parking bans remain in effect.

“Ensuring that our residents are aware of the requirements and available options for parking is vital in clearing the roads after a storm,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “We understand that this is a partnership. If the cars are off the street, then our plows can be more effective and efficient. We thank residents in advance for their cooperation.”

The City of Pawtucket will typically declare a winter storm emergency if there is a forecast of two or more inches of snow. Once a winter storm emergency has been declared, an on-street parking ban will be put into effect on all city streets and all vehicles must be moved off the street at that time.

The parking ban will be posted on local radio and television broadcasts and on the city website. Residents can also sign up for call, email, and text alerts through the City’s CodeRed system at
