City of Lincoln
2004 Media Releases
To help Lincoln residents comply with parking bans, the City invites citizens to use lots in City parks and other public facilities for temporary parking while snow removal efforts continue.
The City is under a snow emergency, which bans parking on emergency snow routes, bus routes and other major arterial streets. Mayor Coleen Seng also has announced that a residential parking ban will go into effect at 8 a.m. Tuesday, January 27. This is a total parking ban, and parking will be banned on both sides of the street in most residential areas until plows have cleared the snow.
The only exception to the total parking ban is in high-density neighborhoods where parking will be banned on the even numbered sides of the street (the north and east sides). When this side is cleared, the parking ban will switch to the other side. A map showing emergency and bus routes and high-density areas can be found on page 38 in the blue pages of the Alltel phone directory. Vehicles parked in violation of the ban may be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense. The latest information is posted on the City web site at lincoln.ne.gov.
“It is very important that residents move their cars off the streets to allow the snow plows to do their job as quickly and efficiently as possible,” said Mayor Seng. “We need everyone’s cooperation as we work to make the streets passable and safe.”
The following lots and facilities are open and available for parking:
Citizens can also contact the nearest library or church to find out if any additional temporary parking facilities are available during the continuing clean-up effort.
