City of Akron Reminds Residents of Potential for a Snow Emergency Parking Ban this Weekend


City of Akron Press Release
From the desk of Ellen Lander Nischt, Press Secretary
Published: 01-18-2019

Akron, Ohio, January 18, 2019 – With the weekend weather forecast calling for substantial snowfall accumulations, the City of Akron is reminding residents of the potential for a parking ban. Residents are encouraged to consider not parking their cars on the street unless necessary on Friday night or Saturday, in anticipation of the possible parking ban.  


A Snow Emergency Parking Ban is issued for main city streets when two inches or more of snow have fallen and there is the potential for additional accumulation. For residential streets, the parking ban is issued when five or more inches of snow have fallen and more is forecasted.  The weather forecast for this weekend indicates the likelihood of this amount of snowfall. The parking ban will remain in place until appropriate snow removal can be completed. 

Once the City of Akron issues a Snow Emergency Parking Ban, all residents and visitors are required to remove their cars from those streets so that snow plows can effectively clear the street. During a parking ban, the City has the authority to tow cars parked on city streets if they impede the progress of snow clearing operations.

Questions or concerns regarding snow removal?  Please contact the Mayor’s Action Center at 3-1-1, (330) 375-2311 or
