Lincolnwood Snow Removal New Alternate Side Parking Policy On October 1, 2009 the Village Board approved amendments to the Village Code which will require residents to follow alternate side street parking regulations during snow events when two inches or more of snowfall has accumulated. This means that on even-numbered days of the month, between the hours of 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday motor vehicles may only be parked on the side of the street with even numbered addresses and on odd-numbered days of the month, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday motor vehicles may only be parked on the side of the street with odd-numbered addresses. Alternate side parking is not in effect during weekends or major holidays. Alternate side parking does not include Pratt Avenue which is a designated snow emergency route. After 2" of snowfall no parking is permitted on Pratt Avenue. Implementation of the policy will allow the Village's Public Works Department to remove snow and ice from roadways all the way to the curb, rather than having to make several trips down each street as cars are moved away from the curb. This will allow for the more effective and efficient use of staff time as well as creating a safer driving environment. Snow and Ice Removal Program The Village of Lincolnwood has 75 lane miles of roads to plow. The snow plan divides the community into 10 plow routes. The goal of the Village's snow removal plan is to have all of the streets cleared in eight hours, in the event of a four to six-inch snowfall. Below are some frequently asked questions regarding the Public Works Department's snow removal efforts. WHEN ARE STREETS PLOWED? Plowing generally begins when snow becomes more than two-inches deep and when freezing temperatures indicate that no melting will occur. If there is a light snowfall and the afternoon sun is melting the fallen snow, it will be left to Mother Nature to remove the snow. WHEN IS PARKING PROHIBITED? Parking is prohibited along Pratt Avenue when two (2) inches or more of snow accumulates.; Cars parked on Pratt Avenue will be ticketed and towed. See additional alternate side parking restrictions above. WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?One major problem that works against snow removal operations is people shoveling or blowing snow back onto the street after it has been plowed and salted.; Snow that has been deposited onto the street could refreeze and cause a hazardous condition for you or your neighbors. Please place the snow that you shovel off of your driveway and sidewalk onto the adjacent parkway and not back onto the street.When it starts to snow, park your vehicle off of the street. This protects the car from being splashed with slush and salt, prevents the car from being plowed in, or from receiving a ticket and being towed.Check that your mailbox and post are in good repair and that they are behind the curb, not leaning out over the street.If there is a fire hydrant in front of your home, please try to clear the snow around the hydrant. It is there for your protection and that of your neighbors.If you have any questions regarding our snow removal efforts, please call the Lincolnwood Public Works Department at;(847);675-0888. If a snow-related emergency occurs after 4:30 P.M., you can call the non-emergency number at the Lincolnwood Police Department at;(847);673-2167.
