Manchester Snow Removal Policy

It may feel like spring but the colder winter will soon be here and with that comes snow removal for City workers. To make snow removal as efficient as possible the City has ordinances for parking restrictions during snow events. The no parking restrictions allow City workers to remove snow from the downtown and emergency snow routes in the most efficient manner. The even/odd parking restrictions allow City workers to clear the snow off the residential streets.

  1. Emergency snow routes:
  1. East and West Main Street from the east corporate limits west to west corporate limits.
  1. North and South Franklin Street from the north corporate limits south to and including the intersection of East Marion Street.
  1. From the corporate limits at Burrington Road and State Highway 13 to and including the intersection of South Fifth Street and West Marion Street.
  1. West Marion Street from and including its intersection with South Fifth Street east to and including its intersection with South Franklin Street.
  1. North and South Brewer Street from and including its intersection with East Fayette Street south to and including its intersection with East Delaware Street.
  1. Bailey Drive from and including its intersection with East Main Street south to the south corporate limits.
  1.            No parking 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. in the downtown area.
  2. East Delaware Street from and including its intersection with South Franklin Street east to and including its intersection with South Brewer Street.
  3. West and East Fayette Street from the municipal parking lot east to and including its intersection with North Brewer Street.
  4. North and South Madison Street from and including its intersection with East Fayette Street south to and including its intersection with East Delaware Street.
  5. North and South Tama Street from and including its intersection with East Fayette Street south to and including its intersection with East Delaware Street.
  1.            Alternate side parking side parking will be in effect in the residential areas whenever the Street Superintendent finds that weather conditions or road conditions may impede vehicular traffic vital to the health, safety or welfare of the City. The Street Superintendent may declare that Alternative Side Parking regulations are in effect and thereby prohibit “vehicular” parking between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. The public may park a vehicle in an area that is not prohibited by other parking regulations within the city during snow removal. A vehicle may be parked on the even side of a street if the calendar date is an even number date at 10 p.m. that evening or a vehicle may be parked on the odd side of a street if the calendar date is an odd number date at 10 p.m.
