‘Tis The Season of Parking Bans in BTV

Tonight, Burlington is expecting its first significant snow fall of the winter season. Currently our area is under a Winter Weather Watch with 3-7 inches of snow expected by the end of tomorrow. While at this point it is unknown if we will see a parking ban issued for Tuesday night, lets this post serve as a reminder of Burlington’s parking pan procedures.

When a parking ban is in effect, all cars must be off the street from 12am-6am in the downtown and 10am-7am in residential areas. Vehicles still on the street during the ban will be towed and assessed a $125 fine.

All parking bans will announced by 3pm at the latest, giving residents ample time to make other plans. With the declaration of a parking ban email messages will also be sent to all subscribers to Nixle. Anyone can check to see if a ban is in effect by calling 658-SNOW (7669).

During a parking ban parking is available in Marketplace Garage (147 Cherry St), Lakeview Garage (41 Cherry St) and College Street Garage (60 College St) on the lower decks only. You must remove your car by 7:30am or you will be charged a full day’s rate. Drivers should not park on the roof of garages during a parking ban.

Park Burlington will work to provide updates about winter weather impacts on Burlington parking. Check out website as well as our Facebook and Twitter for more information.
