Snow Ban Parking Information
The City of Rocky River has adopted a snow ban requirement that prohibits parking on City streets when snow is in excess of two inches of accumulation. Once snow is accumulated over two inches, no parking will be permitted on City streets. You may briefly stop to drop off or pick up persons or items at a residence. Please note that once a snow ban prohibiting parking on all city streets is initiated, it will continue until weather conditions permit the parking ban to cease.
You may have noticed that new “No Parking / Snow Ban” signs have been installed along the roadway at the entrances to the City. The City will use electronic messages (i.e., email, texts, telephone calls) through the Ready Notify system, web site postings, as well as local media assistance to communicate when the street parking snow bans are being initiated and to communicate the end of the snow parking ban. To keep abreast of these notifications please register with Ready Notify, so you will be knowledgeable when a parking ban is in effect. Click here to register.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation in following street parking - snow ban requirements. Adherence to the no street parking during snow ban will ensure our safety forces have access in an emergency and allow street plowing to be accomplished in a safe and efficient manner. The no parking - snow ban requirements are defined in the Rocky River Codified Ordinances Section 351.19, titled, “Snow Emergency and Parking Ban”. Violation of the street parking – snow ban is a minor misdemeanor for the first offense.
