Mayor Segarra Declares Snow Emergency Effective Saturday, December 14, at Noon

(December 13, 2013) Mayor Pedro E. Segarra has declared a snow emergency parking ban for the City of Hartford, beginning at 12pm, noon, on Saturday, December 14, and ending at 12pm, noon, on Sunday, December 15. Current forecasts for that time period predict snowfall from 6-10 inches, along with possible icing.

“This is the first storm of the season” said Mayor Segarra. “It’s important that we as a City do everything we can to ensure clear roads for the emergency responders and public works crews working to keep us safe. This parking ban will also speed our return to normal once the storm has passed."

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:

  • 2 Holcomb Street Lot
  • Keney Park Entrance Lot—Ridgefield Street
  • KDA Center Lot—Naugatuck Street
  • Pope Park Center Lot—Park Terrace
  • Metzner Center Lot—Franklin Avenue
  • Colt Park Lot—Wawarme Avenue
  • Elizabeth Park Lots
  • All Hartford Schools Parking Lots

Residents should remove their vehicles from these lots promptly following the end of the parking ban. All Hartford Schools lots must be vacated by 12:30pm Sunday, December 15. Residents whose vehicles are towed during the parking ban should contact the Hartford Police Department at (860) 757-4000. The total fee for retrieving a towed car is $196.84.
