The Town would like to remind residents and businesses that snow removal operations can affect on-street parking during snow events and for several days after the snow stops falling depending on the severity of the storm.
Town staff performs snow route snow removal on four stretches of roadways following the end of major snow events and after major roadways are generally clear of snow/ice. Three of these routes are located downtown:
- Mainstreet from Parker Road east to PACE Center Drive
- Pikes Peak Drive from Mainstreet south to the bridge over Sulphur Gulch
- Pikes Peak Avenue from Pikes Peak Drive east to Pine Drive
- The fourth snow route is on Clarke Road, east of Dransfeldt Road
Certain route-specific parking rules are enforced in these areas during events that require Town snow removal operations:
- Vehicles must not remain parked on the street or stopped unattended on the street within the snow route area.
- Any vehicle parked or stopped unattended on such street shall be subject to immediate removal and/or ticketing.
- Snow removal operations may continue for several days after snow has stopped, and this policy applies day and night during a snow event.
The Town understands that requiring motorists to find alternative places to park is an inconvenience. Public parking lots are provided in the downtown area, including at The Schoolhouse and O’Brien Park, as well as parking along other non-snow route streets.
Appropriate signage is displayed on each snow route, so please familiarize with these routes if you routinely park on the street, especially in the downtown area.
