Village Snow Regulations

Please note the Village snow regulations below:

In order to facilitate keeping our streets clear of snow and ice no parking is allowed on any village street when there is 2 or more inches of snow.  See Section 215-29-B - Seasonal Parking:

Upon an accumulation of two or more inches of snow, no vehicle of any kind shall be allowed to remain standing on any street or public highway until the snow has ended and the road has been cleared of snow. Vehicles must be relocated to off-street locations and may be parked on the Village right-of-way area directly in front of the vehicle owner’s residence, except that vehicles may not be parked on any part of a street, sidewalk, or curb. All vehicles in violation of this subsection are subject to towing. Vehicles parked in the Municipal Building parking lot, Asbury Methodist parking lot, Merwin Oak parking lot, and South Harmon parking lot must be moved within 12 hours after snow has ended.

Residents with limited access to off-street parking can apply for a seasonal parking permit.  See Section 215-29-C - Seasonal Parking:

Special hardship permits. In cases where there is no off-street location or right-of-way area which can be used, the Village Manager shall, upon written application on forms to be supplied by him and verification of the applicants special hardship, issue an annual permit granting permission to park motor vehicles on the street or public highway except for certain streets designated by the Village Manager, upon recommendation of the Superintendent of the Department of Public Works, provided that such parking conforms to all other laws and regulations. No permit parking shall be permitted on those streets designated by the Village Manager. Hardship permit holders shall move their vehicles no later than 12 hours after the snow stops.

Streets not to be parked on even with a Seasonal Parking Permit during a Snow Emergency:

  • North side of Grand Street between Old Post Road North and Riverside Avenue
  • Both sides of Croton Point Avenue
  • Both sides of Benedict Blvd.
  • Both sides of Maple Street
  • East side of Riverside Avenue between Brook St. and High St.
  • West side (High School side) of Old Post Road South between Maple St. and Cleveland Dr.

Please also remember that it is the responsibility of the homeowner to clear the sidewalk in front of their home.  See Section 197-15-C - Snow and Ice on Sidewalks; Time Limits:

Snow and ice shall be removed from sidewalks within 12 hours after the end of a snowfall. In addition, sidewalks adjoining commercial establishments and commercial parking lots shall be kept free of snow and ice at all times between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

When clearing sidewalks and driveways, do not shovel or blow the snow back on Village streets.  See Section 197-15-F - Depositing on Streets:
