The city’s odd/even winter parking restrictions also are in effect starting Dec. 1 through April 15, which means:

  • Where parking is normally allowed only on one side of the street, parking continues to be allowed on that side every night (i.e., there are no overnight restrictions)
  • No overnight parking is permitted on the cirular portion of dead-end cul-de-sacs.
