Maintenance zones are a concept many municipalities use to designate specific days of the week for routine street, sewer and water maintenance activities, such as hydrant flushing, street sweeping, and snow removal after snow events. The purpose of the zones is to provide the community with a standardized schedule of maintenance to minimize disruptions.
How do these new maintenance zones impact residents?
During the designated maintenance zone day of the week, no on-street parking is allowed 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to allow Public Works crews to conduct maintenance. Signs installation will happen throughout the City over the next month to identify the no-parking day of the week in that maintenance zone. Once the sign is in place, the no parking regulations go into effect for that street.
What are the new maintenance zones?
The maintenance zones share the same boundaries as the garbage collection schedule and the assigned maintenance zone day of the week will be the day before garbage collection. For example, there will be no on street parking 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday’s in the Wednesday garbage collection zone. Monday garbage collection zones will have no on street parking Friday’s. On these days, motorists will need to find alternative parking for their vehicles.
