ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - Rockford’s Public Works department is busy preparing for the upcoming snow season, and touched on some reminders Wednesday to help motorists prepare for how to park during a Snow Emergency declaration.

  • The city will launch a pilot program this season to remove snow from alleys during a Snow Emergency. Residential roads will be prioritized over alleys.
  • Odd/Even parking goes into effect during each Snow Emergency declaration to make room for plows to safely maneuver.
  • On odd number calendar days, vehicles should park on the side of the street with odd numbered addresses.
  • On even number calendar days, vehicles should park on the side of the street with even numbered addresses.
  • Cars must be moved to the appropriate side of the street each morning by 8 a.m.
  • In cases of streets with “No Parking” signs on one side, the Snow Emergency declaration allows you to park legally in the restricted area while it is in effect.
  • ADA designated on-street parking requires ADA placards at all times, including a Snow Emergency declairation.
  • Parking tickets up to $60 will be issued for vehicles in violation the Snow Emergency parking requirement.
