Where to Park During a Snow Emergency

If you are required to move your vehicle, you can park in one of the City's designated emergency parking lots located around the City for the duration of the snow emergency. The lots are located at the Beebe, Linden, Ferryway, Forestdale, Salemwood schools as well as the Early Learning Center. You must monitor our website, social media or dial 311 to be informed about when your vehicle needs to be moved.
