Maplewood steps up parking bans

After recent snowfalls, Maplewood Public Works and Police Departments will coordinate to step up enforcement and removal efforts when snowfall levels require city snow plows to be deployed.

Maplewood city code prohibits overnight parking on any city street between the hours of 2 and 6 a.m., and when plowing is required Maplewood Police will tow illegally parked vehicles in addition to the traditional response of ticketing.

Parking of any vehicle on any street or road for more than 30 minutes during the time intervening between a snowfall and the plowing or removal of such snow is prohibited. Vehicles may not be parked on City streets after 2 a.m. and should remain off the street until the roadway has been plowed curb-to-curb.

When snowfall levels require, Maplewood plow crews typically begin full-scale plowing operations between 3 and 5 a.m. In such situations, the Maplewood Police Department will initiate stepped-up enforcement efforts, including citation issuance and towing shortly after 2 a.m..
