New legislation was passed at a public hearing held on September 2, 2015 enacting parking restrictions during snow emergencies. It requires all vehicles to be removed from the street when 3 or more inches of snow are anticipated. Village announcements of a snow emergency declaration are sent in advance of pending snowfall via our emergency alert system.

The snow emergency parking restriction is applicable to all Village streets except:

Mill Pond Road; East side of Waterview Drive, and Soundview Drive only between the cross streets of Dock Lane and Waterview Drive.

Residents may stack their cars in their driveways, on lawns, and share driveways with neighbors.

 We urge all residents to follow and inform their neighbors of this new law in the interest of safety for our Village.  Failure to adhere to the parking restrictions can lead to a summons of up to $250.  A copy of the law is available to view on our website www.portwashingtonnorth.org  under “Departments/Emergency Management/Winter Storms”

To receive announcements of when a snow emergency is declared, please register with our emergency alert system at www.northshorealert.org.

A few reminders:

  • Roads must be kept clear for plowing and accessible for emergency vehicles. Vehicles in violation create a hazard and are subject to police. enforcement.  Please avoid all unnecessary travel during this time.
  • When shoveling do not put snow in the streets. It is dangerous, illegal, and requires re-plowing.
