Winter Storm Preparedness

In anticipation of snow accumulation well in excess of 2 inches, residents are asked to refrain from parking on streets this weekend – January 18-20.  A snow emergency being declared in the City of Bowling Green is imminent for Saturday, January 19, based on current storm forecasts.  Keeping streets free and clear of parked vehicles is a tremendous help in the snow removal process, allowing the entire street to be cleared and treated.

If two inches of snow is received, a snow emergency may be declared, implementing parking restrictions.  As a reminder, if a snow emergency is declared between the hours of 7:00 am and 9:00 pm, vehicles must be removed from snow streets within 2 hours of the declaration.  If a snow emergency is declared after 9:00 pm, vehicles must be removed by 9:00 am the following morning.

Residents are encouraged to monitor the City’s website, local news, or follow the City on social media such as Facebook (@cityofbg) and Twitter (@cityofbg).
