PARKING DURING AND AFTER SNOWFALL
To allow streets to be plowed more efficiently and effectively, the City of Crestwood allows parking on only one side of the street during snow events. Crestwood Ordinance 14.159 restricts residents to parking on the side of the street with even addresses during winters which begin in even years; and to parking on the side of the street with odd addresses during winters which begin in odd years. Since the 2020/2021 winter season begins in an even year, parking will be allowed only on the side of the street with even addresses during this winter season of 2020/2021. Please contact the Public Works Department at 314-729-4720 with any questions.
***VEHICLES PARKED ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE STREET DURING SNOW EVENTS WILL BE TICKETED AND REQUIRED TO MOVE IMMEDIATELY***
As snow accumulates, the main goal of the City’s Public Works Department is to get the City’s streets plowed as quickly as possible, so that traffic can flow smoothly and safely, with the least inconvenience to businesses and residents. Reducing or eliminating the number of vehicles that are parked on the street, allows snow plow crews to work faster, safer and to more completely clear the streets. The City’s leaders ask residents with driveways and/or garages to use them for parking their vehicles during snow events. Unfortunately, an unavoidable downside of plowing is that snow will be pushed to the right side of the snow plow truck, and always towards driveways. For this reason, property owners may want to refrain from clearing snow from driveways until after the snowplows have cleared the street for the first time. Snow from driveways should be placed to the sides, not into the streets, to avoid future snowplows from pushing this snow back into driveways.
***IT IS SOLELY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF PROPERTY OWNERS TO CLEAR THEIR DRIVEWAYS AND SIDEWALKS***
