Mayor Thomas Gillen said the city’s “Alternate-Side Parking Restriction” will begin at 1 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11.
During this time, parking on city streets must be done on an odd-even schedule. This means on an odd numbered day, for example Dec. 15, parking must be done on the odd side of the street, such as the side where houses numbered 103 and 107 are located. On even numbered days, such as Dec. 14, parking must be done from 1 to 6 a.m. on even numbered sides of the street.
This is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other permanent parking restriction that may apply.
Simply remember — On even calendar days, park on the even side of the street, and on odd calendar days, park on the odd side of the street.
If parking a vehicle for the night prior to midnight, be sure to park where parking is regularly permitted and on the correct side for the next day (1 to 6 a.m.)
And be aware of instances where the last day of the month and the first day of the month are both odd-numbered days.
Permanent signs have been installed in the downtown area (West Bridge Street from Water Street to West 2nd Street, and West First Street and West Second Street, from West Oneida Street to West Cayuga Street) indicating “NO PARKING -1:00 am to 6:00 am.” Please note that these “NO PARKING” signs are just for the posted hours, 1 to 6 a.m. and not intended for any other time of the day.
