Snow Emergencies

When significant snowfall and/or high winds are expected, the City may issue a Snow Emergency, watch local media outlets for details. See our Street Section for more information.


During a snow emergency, the following restrictions will be enforced:

  • No vehicle will be allowed to park on any street until the snow emergency has expired, this includes metered parking areas.
  • Overnight on-street parking will not be granted during the snow emergency.
  • Vehicles found parking on-street during the snow emergency will be tagged, ticketed and towed at the owner's expense.

All Green Bay residents and property owners must follow these snow emergency restrictions to ensure that Department of Public Works Street Crews can clear roads in a safe and efficient manner.

Reduce Traveling

During snow emergencies, residents are urged not to travel unless absolutely necessary. Reduced traffic contributes to resident safety and allows Department of Public Works Street Crews to do its most effective job while clearing the streets.
