City lists addresses where cars may be towed starting this morning

If you missed the warnings yesterday, the city has said it will start towing cars that are hindering snow plows today.

The city planned to issue a State of Emergency order at 9 a.m. this morning. That will require residents to move their vehicles off of city streets or observe the snow parking practices.

Vehicles that are not moved by 9 a.m. are subject to towing.

The fire department has released a list of 197 locations across the city where parked vehicles are impeding public safety. Several of these are in Midtown.

More from the city:

The City will not waive towing fees for those vehicles that are deemed to impede public safety or snow removal efforts.  Residents may view the list of these vehicles online at

The City is taking such measures because it is absolutely imperative that emergency crews be able to access both primary and residential streets in an emergency. If snow plows are unable to clear a street due to vehicles parked in their way, an emergency crew would have difficulty accessing the street.
During the State of Emergency, the City will waive parking regulations that would affect a vehicle’s ability to follow the above configuration. For example, residents living on one-way streets may park in usual “no parking” areas if it follows the above parking practice.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning from Monday, Feb. 25 at 3 p.m. until Tuesday, Feb. 26 at 3 p.m. According to the Winter Storm Warning, there is potential for 6-12 inches of snow accumulation with locally higher amounts.


List of vehicles to be towed

Residents who live in neighborhoods with on-street parking only should observe the following parking practice:

  • On streets that run north/south, park on the west side of the street.
  • On streets that run east/west, park on the north side of the street.
