Norwich — City police issued a reminder Tuesday that parking on the odd side of city streets is prohibited during snowstorms and snow removal operations.
The police also provided a list of city streets that are so narrow that parking is not allowed on either side: Old Cemetery Lane; North Cliff Street; Shetucket Avenue; Terrace Avenue; Fourth Street from Prospect Street to Gilmour Street; Fifth Street from Prospect Street to Page Street; Lake Street; Pond Street; Freeman Avenue; Boswell Avenue from Lake Street to Arnold Street; Sunnyside Avenue (Laurel Hill section); Fairmount Street (from No. 16 to School Street); Carter Avenue; Fountain Street (from No. 16 to School Street); Summer Street; Center Street; and Quarry Street.
The police said people violating the parking ban, in effect from 3 p.m. Tuesday through noon Wednesday, may be towed at the owner's expense and be subject to a $25 fine.
City ordinance also calls for property owners and occupants to remove or sand "all snow, sleet, or ice from the sidewalks abutting their property" within 12 hours of the storm, or within 6 hours after sunrise if the storm happened overnight.
