Portland has already announced there will be a city-wide parking ban beginning tonight at 10:00 p.m. in anticipation of the severe snow storm that is expected to hit the state tonight. The ban ends tomorrow, Thursday, February 19th at 6:00 a.m. Cars must be removed from their parking spaces by 7:00 a.m.
Residents may begin parking their cars at designated places around the city as early as 5:00 p.m. today. The Cutter Street lots off the Eastern Promenade remain a good altnerative for Hill residents. All other city parking ban rules apply concerning fines, etc.
