CITY OF ROCKY RIVER PARKING BAN DURING SNOW EVENTS REMINDER
Winter weather has arrived! The City of Rocky River has a parking ban law in effect when two (2) inches of snow fall during a twenty-four hour period. Please be aware during a snow event that once accumulation reaches two (2) inches the parking ban automatically goes into effect and no parking is allowed on City streets. As we know in Northeast Ohio, it is difficult to accurately predict what each snow storm will bring; therefore, before parking your car in the street please make sure that there has not been two new inches of snow in the last twenty-four hours.
The snow parking ban ends when either the accumulation is reduced to less than two inches or until the snow ban is lifted by the City.
You can read more about the snow parking ban from the Rocky River Codified Ordinance 351.19 (Codified Ordinances are located on the City’s website – rrcity.com).
Thank you for your cooperation and assistance with the City’s snow parking ban. Having the roads clear of parked vehicles allows our safety forces critical access to residences during emergencies. In addition, snow plows can clear the snow efficiently and move ice and snow off of the catch basins which allows for melted snow to quickly move off our streets. Those efforts to keep our streets clear of snow and ice will allow the City to provide efficient services to all our residents.
If you have any questions about the snow ban please call the Rocky River Police Division at 440-331-1234 or City Hall at 440-331-0600.
