BEND, OR -- There’s no snow on the ground yet, but it’s likely on the way. And, Bend streets officials remind drivers of new rules created after record-breaking snowfall, two years ago.

 

The city launched a pilot program, last winter, to designate targeted Snow Emergency Zone parking restrictions during snow emergencies. But, the 2017-18 winter was so mild, no snow emergencies were declared. The pilot program remains in place this winter. 

 

If the city declares a snow emergency, certain roads will be deemed emergency snow zones, and no parking will be allowed for 12 hours, to allow plows to get through. Click HERE for a list of snow zone streets and to sign up for snow emergency notifications.

 

Officials say they don't intend to tow cars. But, if crews have to, they'll move vehicles to identified relocation areas at no cost to the owner. "Do your neighbors a favor: Don't get plowed around," Streets and Operations Department Director David Abbas said in a prepared statement. "Plowing around parked cars can end up leaving a berm that would be difficult for a person with a shovel to remove."
