Also sharing information regarding the forecast for New Year's Day - Saturday January 1st! ❄️❄️❄️

Good Morning Pekin

As most of you are aware, there has been a Winter Storm Watch issued for our area until 6am Sunday Morning. With this issued watch many questions begin to arise about parking and other winter weather related issues. The intent of this post is to get us thinking ahead of the storm so that we do not have to enforce any parking issues that typically arise during this storm events.

SNOW ROUTE PARKING:

One can find the most current snow route map here: https://pekin.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=8d7db38551fb4baba7e6c7dc3061eb0c

If we receive two or more inches of snow during this event the snow routes are automatically enforced. These routes are also posted with signage indicating that it is a snow route. We typically will get many questions about where to park when these routes are enforced. That is why we are making this post well in advance of the event. We are asking that you talk with your neighbors for other possible options to gain permission to access parking there, or elsewhere until our street department has been able to clear streets. We cannot give you permission to park on others property, but if you take the time to talk with neighbors or neighboring businesses they may work with you.

CITY WIDE SNOW BANS

This is when we have a significant event and we will only use this as a last resort to allow our street department the opportunity to plow all of our streets when the snow is coming faster than they can remove it. We issue these notices through our social media, NIXLE as well as our local news media. We make every effort to utilize this tool for a minimal amount of time as we know the impact that it has on our community. So please, now that winter is officially here have a plan in place for these events. Planning ahead, and not in the heat of the moment will be most appreciated on our part.

If one has not already done so we strongly encourage you to utilize our NIXLE app to keep up to the minute with information regarding not only severe weather events, but other City events, or issues that arise. One will receive these messages by text or email keeping you posted with up to date information. Simply go to www.nixle.com to sign up to receive these alerts.

In the meantime while celebrating the arrival of 2022 and this snow event, please celebrate responsibly.

Happy New Year Pekin!!
