Street plowing

Town of Jackson Streets Department employees remove snow and packed, icy debris from West Kelly Avenue in February. The town’s winter overnight street parking ban begins Nov. 1. Violators can be ticketed and towed.

Starting Friday, drivers are prohibited from parking vehicles on town streets overnight.

The annual winter street parking ban runs from 3 to 7 a.m. every night from Nov. 1 to April 15, regardless of weather conditions. It’s a seasonal change designed to help facilitate snow removal and winter street maintenance, according to the town of Jackson.

“Keeping a consistently active parking ban eliminates the need for residents and guests to guess what the weather will do on a particular night and takes into account the prospect of fast-changing weather in our area,” a town statement said. “Even a few illegally parked cars slows down the snow removal process and ultimately costs us all more money.”

Cars found in violation of the parking ban may be ticketed and towed.

Overnight parking is allowed at the parking garage at Pearl Avenue and Millward Street.

Town officials ask residents to avoid parking with cars sticking out over the sidewalk or into the right of way.

Residents are also responsible for keeping sidewalks shoveled, and are asked to wait until 7 a.m. to put out garbage cans to keep them out of the way of street maintenance crews.
