Neighbors--Please try to stay off the streets. Staying off the streets keeps us all safe, and makes it much easier for Town plows to operate. Park your car off the street. To make it easier for plows to clear Town streets and for us all to safely get around, please park your car entirely off the street--in your driveway, or (with permission) in your neighbor's drive. If you are unable to utilize off-street parking, please follow these Snow Event Parking Guidelines:
My apology for the late reminder, but I am hoping you are aware that a Winter Storm Warning from the National Weather Service (NWS) is in effect for University Park and much of central Maryland from 1 a.m. until 4 p.m. The NWS predicts that our area may receive up to seven inches of snow.
Police and Public Works personnel will be operating in Town throughout the "event." During winter weather, help our Department of Public Works crews plow your street by parking off-street in your driveway, or if not possible, on the same side of the road as your neighbors and as close to the curb as possible. Here are some tips on what you can do to help:
Both Sides No Parking:Clear your walkways. Owners or tenants of residential properties with paved sidewalks adjacent to their properties are responsible for ensuring that the sidewalks are treated and cleared of snow and ice within 48 hours after snow has fallen or ice has accumulated to a depth of 2 or more inches. It is neighborly--as well as easier--to clear these walkways sooner than that. Help your neighbors cope as well. Please take a moment to look after the well-being of your neighbors, especially seniors or others who might appreciate some help. Cold and snow are also fine times to get together for a neighborly cup of tea, coffee, or soup. If you have driveway space to spare, share it with a neighbor, getting their car off the street as well.
