Evanston Asks Residents to Park on Odd Side of Streets Monday

The City of Evanston is asking residents to voluntarily abide by the restrictions today so crews can remove snow.

Live on the even side of the street in Evanston? The city is asking residents to voluntarily abide by the alternate side parking restrictions and park on the odd side of streets Monday so crews can remove the snow.

So far Evanston has received 2.5 inches of snow with flurries expected to taper off by this afternoon. City crews will be clearing streets into the evening, according to a press release.

The city reminds residents and businesses that they must clear snow and ice from the sidewalks adjacent to their respective properties for the safety of their neighbors after a snow or ice event. If snow is packed and difficult to remove, the city advises using salt or sand to make sidewalks passable.

Landlords are responsible for keeping sidewalks, parking lots and all common areas, including open stairwells, free from all hazardous conditions at all times.

Sidewalks should be completely cleared to allow everyone to travel freely using the sidewalks instead of the street. Also be aware of elderly or disabled neighbors who cannot shovel their own walks and offer to help.

I want to know why Evanston takes SO LONG plowing our streets?? They need to be on top of it as it caused a lot of ciaos this morning. Sheridan Rd was a MESS!!! The mere fact that Evanston also continues to remove the Eb & Flow from our streets by either having another traffic light/stop or adding a no turn on red just adds to the frustration to our residents. Have the trucks be ready when the weather says SNOW!!!!! We pay enough in taxes so.....
