As this late winter snowstorm sweeps in, Oak Parkers should be aware that the snow emergency parking rules in Oak Park are in effect.
Main streets designated as snow routes must be cleared of all parked cars. Parking is allowed on non-snow route streets between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. on the even (east and north) address side on even days and odd (west and south) side on odd days.
Designated commercial parking areas follow the odd/even rule between midnight and 8 a.m. Signs are posted in these areas. Snow parking regulations do not apply from 10 p.m.-8 a.m. on residential side streets. Parking, however, continues to be prohibited on all posted snow routes. For more information, call (708) 358-7669 or visit www.oak-park.us/snow.
