With the start of the winter snow season, Woodbury residents need to be aware that the city's winter parking regulations once again are in effect.

To facilitate plowing, parking on city streets is banned between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. from Nov. 1 through April 1. City ordinance No. 14-122 also prohibits on-street parking any time two or more inches of snow have accumulated, until after the street has been completely plowed. The two-inch guideline applies to any hour of the day, any time of the year.

The winter parking ordinance does not apply to private streets (marked with a blue street sign), only to public roadways. Residents who violate the ordinance will be issued an administrative citation. Questions about the winter parking regulations or snow removal procedures may be directed to the Public Works Department, (651) 714-3720 or publicworks@ci.woodbury.mn.us.
