TODAY AT 6:00 P.M.: MAYOR BRONIN DECLARES SNOW EMERGENCY PARKING BAN

(February 5, 2016) Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin has declared a snow emergency parking ban for the City of Hartford, beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, February 5, 2016 and ending at 9 a.m. on Saturday, February 6, 2016. All Hartford District Public School will parking lots will be available for parking.  However, cars must be moved by noon on Saturday.

“With heavy snow falling throughout the day and temperatures plummeting tonight, it’s critical that we allow our DPW team to clear the streets before we accumulate frozen material that’s difficult to plow," said Bronin. "This ban will allow us to plow curb to curb and get the streets cleared quickly.  I urge residents without off-street parking to move their vehicles to one of our district school lots once the parking ban goes into effect.”

During a snow emergency parking ban, all on-street parking is prohibited throughout the City of Hartford. Any vehicles not removed from City streets by the start of the parking ban will be ticketed and towed. Residents without access to off-street parking should move their vehicles to one of the following authorized parking areas before the start of the parking ban:

  • Colt Park – Warwarme Street Lot                  
  • Dillon Stadium – Curcombe Street Lot     
  • Elizabeth Park – Asylum Street                   
  • Elizabeth Park – Prospect Avenue             
  • Goodwin Park – Hubbard Avenue             
  • Goodwin Park – Maple Ave. Golf Course                     
  • Keney Park – Woodland Street             
  • Keney Park – Ridgefield Street              
  • Pope Park –Park Terrace Lot   
  • 2 Holcomb Street Lot
  • 80 Coventry Lot 
  • KDA Center Lot – Naugatuck Street             
  • All Hartford District School Parking Lots. For a complete list, visitwww.hartfordschools.org/schools and select “District.”

Residents should remove their vehicles from the lots promptly following the end of the parking ban. Residents whose vehicles are towed during the parking ban should contact the Hartford Police Department at (860) 757-4000. The cost for retrieving a towed vehicle is $93.59. An additional $99.00 ticket will be issued, which owners are responsible for paying before the answer date.
