Bowling Green Residents Urged to Remove Vehicles from Streets Overnight

City crews are watching this evening’s storm closely and preparing equipment for the first big snow of the season. Now’s a great time for City residents to remind themselves if they live on a snow street certain parking restrictions will be instituted if a snow emergency is declared.  Snow streets are marked with blue and white signs.  A full list can also be found on the City’s website: https://www.bgohio.org/departments/public-works-department/public-works-division/snow-guidelines/

Even those who do not live on snow streets are asked to remove vehicles from the street whenever possible.  Doing so helps crews remove snow along the roads quickly and safely.

A snow emergency within the City may be declared if 2 inches of snow accumulate. If a snow emergency is declared between the hours of 7:00 am and 9:00 pm, vehicles parked on a snow street must be removed within two hours of the declaration. If a snow emergency is declared overnight, vehicles must be removed by 9:00 am. Vehicles parked in violation of snow regulations are subject to being towed at the owner’s expense and a citation may be issued.

Residents wishing to know immediately if the City declares a snow emergency are urged to download CodeRED for emergency alerts.

Designated streets and other winter regulations are also posted to the City’s website and can be accessed on the homepage.
