The City of Gloucester snow emergency and parking ban is being extended due to the continued snow storm.
From now until noon on Tuesday, February 10th, all vehicles are banned from parking on city streets.
Violators of this emergency declaration are subject to ticketing and towing at the owners expense. Residents may park in municipal and school parking lots during the parking ban. We have provided extra time so all cars may be removed from parking lots no later than noon on Tuesday, February 10th.
