Snow Emergency Information
During major snow storms, the City will declare a snow emergency and a parking ban on key arteries to ensure that plows can fully clear snow at those locations. In most cases during snow emergencies, the Wonderland parking garage will be available at a reduced rate for residents for the duration of the parking ban.
