Effective at noon today, Saturday, January 7th, 2017, Gloucester has declared a snow emergency and parking ban on all city streets due to the first snow storm of the year. 
From noon today, Saturday, January 7th, until noon Sunday, January 8th, all vehicles are banned from parking on city streets. The Sawyer Free Library will also close at noon today.
Residents may park in all municipal and school parking lots, including Gloucester High School, O’Maley Innovation Middle School, West Parish and all other school parking lots. Please be advised that all vehicles in school lots must be removed one hour after the ban has been lifted.

All residents and businesses are reminded that they are responsible for clearing snow from sidewalks adjacent to their property. Please make every effort to shovel out hydrants at or near your homes, and please check on your elderly and disabled. Violators of this emergency declaration are subject to ticketing and towing at the owner’s expense.

Please remove all vehicles from municipal parking lots two hours after the parking ban expires. Your cooperation during this parking ban is necessary for efficient and safe snow removal efforts.
