Reminder About Odd/ Even Parking


Reminder About Odd/ Even Parking

With winter weather on the way, we remind everyone to stay safe and be aware of the potential for enactment of Odd/ Even parking. 

Odd/ Even parking regulations are in effect between November 1st and April 1st. The Odd/ Even parking regulation mandates that from 7 p.m. on an odd-numbered calendar day to 6 a.m. the next day, cars must park on the odd side of the street (where the house numbers are odd). On an even day from 7 p.m. to the next day at 6 a.m., cars must park on the even side of the street.

The City will only enforce the Odd/ Even parking regulations when needed (during a snow event or other situations when it is necessary to clear the streets of vehicles).  

If you wish to be notified when the odd/even parking regulations will be enforced, you may sign up for our "Odd/Even Parking Notifications" list here via TC SIREN, the City and County's emergency alert system. 

You can also text "SIREN" to "67283". Be sure to select the "Odd/Even Parking Notifications" subscription list, along with any others that may be helpful to you. 

The city's website will also have an alert posted to it until the enforcement period ends. While enforcement of the regulations is in effect, everyone must comply with the regulations or risk receiving a parking ticket.

If your street only has parking on one side of the street, you may have to find parking on a nearby street on alternate days.

Your compliance with these regulations helps keep the city's streets free from accumulated snow, ice, and debris.

Streets marked permanently for 24-hour parking are exempt from the odd/even parking regulation.
