Winter parking restrictions begin today

JACKSON, Wyo. — Winter parking restrictions go into effect today, Nov. 1.

The Town of Jackson prohibits parking on all streets and alleys between the hours of 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. from today until April 15 to allow for snow removal and winter street operations. Enforcement will take place every morning during these dates, regardless of whether or not it snows.

“If you must leave your car overnight, please plan ahead and find an alternate location. Overnight parking is always allowed in the Public Parking Garage located at the intersection of Milward and Simpson for up to 48 hours,” said the Town.

The current bond amount set for an overnight parking violation is $100.00.

The winter parking ban is in place because of the potential for snowfall in the region. Snow can only efficiently and cost-effectively be cleared at night from lots and streets that are empty of cars. After a storm, public works crews spend up to a week hauling snow and laying gravel to keep our streets in good condition. It is neither safe nor efficient for cars to be parked on the street while this work is being completed.
