The City of Cleveland encourages residents to:
Park off-street whenever possible to give snow plows the ability to plow streets curb-to-curb.
Stay off the streets as much as possible for their own personal safety and to allow snow plows greater access to the city’s roadways.
If you must travel, use caution, allow extra time, and remember not to “block the box” at intersections.
Residents with snow removal concerns should call (216) 664-2510.

Martin L. Flask, Director of Public Safety for the City of Cleveland, has declared a Snow Emergency Parking Ban for the city of Cleveland effective at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 2, 2014. As a result, stopping, standing, and parking of vehicles will be restricted and prohibited on City streets with posted red and white signs UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Parking is prohibited on designated Snow Emergency streets, which are identified as necessary for transportation, the movement of food and fuel supplies, medical care, fire, health and police protection and other vital facilities of the City. Significant snowfall can cause streets to become congested and un-passable. Vehicles left parked in the roadway prevent snowplows from clearing streets, which can make driving down these streets impossible. The resultant bottlenecks and gridlock can hamper response by emergency vehicles. For this reason, citizens are encouraged to avoid parking vehicles on all city streets to allow snow plows sufficient time to removeqbridal_cleveland-e1354221218368.jpg snow and ice from the roads.
