Importance of Winter Parking Restrictions

Contact: Amber Barrett, Community Affairs Officer, amber.barrett@eaglecounty.us, 970 328-8512


Oct. 28, 2016 – The Eagle County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the community about the importance of winter parking restrictions.  Many Eagle County neighborhoods have winter parking restrictions that begin November 1st each year.  By being aware of the parking restrictions in your community, we can all work together for a safer commute this winter.  

It is important to learn the parking restrictions and to abide by posted signs for safety and snow removal purposes. Local snow removal professionals and law enforcement work together during winter months to keep snow and ice clear from areas to help keep parking and pedestrian movement in the community safe. Typically you can expect that your neighborhood will not allow on-street parking overnight during winter months and during snowstorms.

A few helpful snow removal and safety tips following a snowstorm:

  • Expect that main primary roads and roads that service hospitals, police, fire, schools, commercial areas and the ski areas will take priority and are often plowed before 8:00 a.m. Secondary efforts will then be focused on residential streets and side streets as snowfall allows.
  • Residents and property owners should expect to be responsible for maintaining their own driveways, parking areas and sidewalks.
  • Residents and hired snowplows / snow shovelers are typically not allowed to push or plow snow into or across roadways and are required to help keep fire hydrants clear.
  • Automobiles may be ticketed and/or towed if left on streets, roadways or shoulders during snowstorms and during snow removal operations.   

For more information in your neighborhood please visit town websites for more details.
