City Starts Alternate Side Parking Early, Residents Should Utilize Off-Street Parking

11/21/2016

(BINGHAMTON, N.Y.) — Due to recent snowfall and anticipated snow accumulations in the next week, the City of Binghamton will begin its alternate side parking rules early.

Starting tonight, residents must comply with alternate side parking rules which will remain in effect from 5:00 p.m. on Nov. 21, 2016 to March 15, 2017, as this policy allows for safe and efficient snow plowing of all City streets.

In previous years, alternate side parking rules did not begin until Dec. 1. For questions, please contact: (607) 772-7095 or (607) 772-7087.

In addition, all motorists are strongly encouraged to move vehicles off streets and into driveways or parking lots at City parks to allow snow plows and emergency crews to keep streets clear.

“We asks for residents’ support to ensure public works crews are able to clear snow as quickly and safely as possible,” said Mayor Richard C. David. “In addition, this measure will minimize cars getting covered or surrounded in snow as plows pass with residents having to dig themselves out.”

Alternate side parking includes the following guidelines:

  • On even calendar days, park on the even side of the street until 5:00 p.m.
  • On odd calendar days, park on the odd side of the street until 5:00 p.m.
  • The change in parking occurs each day at 5:00 p.m. For example, since Nov. 22 is an even day, vehicles must be moved to the even side of the street at 5:00 p.m. Residents should think, “park for tomorrow.”
  • Rules are in effect 24 hours per day.
  • Alternate side parking rules apply to all City streets, including those with parking on only one side.
  • Streets with no parking on both sides of street remain no parking zones on both sides of the street. In these cases, alternate side parking does not apply.
  • Rules do not apply for metered parking.
