MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Two giant snowstorms in three days means Minneapolis officials have declared a second snow emergency. Thew new one will begin at 9 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 25.
The snow emergency currently in effect will end at 8 p.m. tonight, and parking restrictions for the Snow Emergency declared today will take effect beginning at 9 p.m. Once a side of a street is fully plowed, drivers can move and park their vehicles there.
When a Snow Emergency is declared, parking rules go into effect so plows can clear the streets and fire trucks, police cars, ambulances and other vehicles can then get around and park. Plowing the streets completely requires vehicles parked on streets to move. It’s in everyone’s best interest to follow the parking rules so plows can do the best job possible, and folks can avoid a ticket and tow.
