Parking at Red Cow during a Snow Emergency

Day 1 - 9 p.m. to 8 a.m. (overnight)

Do not park on either side of the street with the red sign: Snow Emergency Route. Snow plows will clear those streets first.

A Snow Emergency will be declared no later than 6 p.m. on any given day. At 9 p.m. on that day, Snow Emergency parking rules begin.

Park on either side of non-Snow Emergency routes (these streets DO NOT have the red sign: Snow Emergency Route).

After a street is fully plowed, feel free to park there, even if Snow Emergency parking rules are still in effect. Fully plowed means the street is completely cleared and plowed as wide as possible. Plows may come through more than once, so make sure that it is fully plowed as wide as possible before parking.

At 8 a.m., Day Two parking rules begin.

Do not park on the EVEN side of non-Snow Emergency routes. (Example: house address number: 1356 Maple or 2512 17th Ave.)

Do not park on either side of parkways.

Park on the odd side of non-Snow Emergency Route streets (example: house address number 1359 Maple or 2513 17th Ave.).

Park on either side of streets with the red sign: Snow Emergency Route.

After a street is fully plowed, feel free to park there, even if Snow Emergency parking rules are still in effect. Fully plowed means the street is completely cleared and plowed as wide as possible.

Day 3 - 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

How do I find the odd or even side of the street?

Check the address

The easiest way to tell the odd- or even-numbered side of a street is to check the street address of buildings.

If the address ends in an even number ( 0, 2, 4, 6, 8), then that building is on the EVEN side of the street ( Example: house address number: 135 6 Maple or 251 2 17 th Ave.).

If the address ends in an odd number ( 1, 3, 5, 7, 9), then that building is on the ODD side of the street ( example: house address number: 135 9 Maple or 251 3 17 th Ave .).

No address to check?

If there are no buildings on the street, it is harder to know which is the odd side or even-numbered side.

Our best advice is to ask neighbors or business owners to let you know which side is which before you park. If you have a question about a specific street, please feel free to call the Public Works Street Division at (612) 673-5720.
