Winter Weather Reminders

Winter Weather Reminders...

A friendly reminder from the City of Ithaca - snow showers bring snow plowers, and the enforcement of Odd/ Even parking to make way for their vehicles to clear the street. To stay informed of when Odd/ Even parking is in effect, please sign up for Swift911 by texting "Swift" to "99538" or register online. When Odd/ Even parking regulations are in place alerts will sent out via Swift911, as well as on the city's website. To be safe, you can also simply follow the odd/even parking regulations during the winter season. You can find information about Odd/ Even parking here

In the event of winter weather, it is also important to be sure the walkways in front of your home or apartment are free of snow and ice. More about the city’s snow removal policies can be found here

Please also remember to stay alert and stay safe during increased traffic while folks head home for the holidays. Welcoming intercity buses downtown to Green Street means welcoming travelers as well, so watch out for pedestrians. Please use the left-hand side of Green Street when picking up and dropping of travelers to avoid obstructing the bus lanes. Always be aware of your surroundings when driving, walking, and or bicycling, especially during winter weather, which can cause limited visibility and slippery road conditions.
