Park Ridge Snow Removal Q: Snow Parking Restrictions. What are the City's snow parking restrictions? A: Parking is prohibited on both sides of streets designated as snow routes, after 2" of snow has fallen, until 24 hours after the snow stops. Residents may call 847-318-6101 for a recorded message as to whether snow parking restrictions are in effect. Most main streets are posted as snow routes. Vehicles parked there during snow parking restriction times will be ticketed and towed at the owner's expense. Parking is also prohibited as posted on the north and west sides of all other residential streets after 2" of snow has fallen, until 24 hours after the snow has stopped. If snow falls during the night, vehicles parked in violation of snow parking restrictions will be ticketed. Q: Snow Removal. What are the rules regarding snow removal? A: Shoveling or plowing of snow into the street is not permitted in Park Ridge. A violation carries a $50 minimum fine. Q: Snow Plowing Priorities. Why is snow plowed more often or quicker on some streets than on others? A: Priority is given to the arterial and collector streets that serve the most people. These streets collectively make up our snow routes. Streets adjoining schools are also given priority. These streets are salted to provide bare pavement as a goal. The City’s objective is to keep these streets clear by frequent, repeated salting and plowing. Residential districts are plowed simultaneously with the snow routes, but without the same intensity of resources. The time required to complete the fourteen districts will vary depending upon the duration of the snow storm. The goal is to have all districts plowed 12-24 hours after the snow has stopped. The City does not salt the entire length of residential streets so a bare pavement is not expected. However, the approaches to intersections on residential streets are salted (150 feet on each side). Parking lot areas are plowed generally after the streets are plowed and are done overnite, when the lots are empty. Snow removal is practiced only in the major business areas and City parking lots after the initial emergency has passed and only when the accumulation is deemed significant.
