Alternate Side Parking Program

The Village’s Alternate-Side Parking Program is in effect from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week, after a snow accumulation of at least two inches. The program is a minimum two-day operation.

  • An “alert” warning siren will sound at 7 a.m., indicating that alternate-side parking will be in effect for the day.
  • The siren will then sound at 6 p.m., indicating that alternate-side parking has ended for that day.
    • On even dates of the month, all vehicles must be parked on the side of the street with even-numbered addresses. Violators will be ticketed and towed.
    • On odd dates of the month, all vehicles must be parked on the side of the street with odd-numbered addresses. Violators will be ticketed and towed.
  • Comcast customers should tune to channel 17 and RCN customers should tune to channel 25 to find out if alternate-side parking is in effect for the day.
