The City of Idaho Falls reminds residents that the snow removal parking restriction ordinance for the season starts on Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017.
The parking restrictions will automatically be in effect from Nov. 15 through March 15, 2018, whenever a snow event occurs.
A snow event is defined as any occurrence in which more than two (2) inches of snow accumulates on the roadway as measured by the Idaho Transportation Department’s I-15 Idaho Falls Weather Station, located near the junction of I-15 and US-20.
When a qualifying snow event occurs, parking restrictions will be in effect. Plowing of all streets will begin on a priority basis.
The city will continue to issue public notices of snow events and parking restrictions using communication channels such as local media outlets (TV, web, radio, print), city website, Facebook, Twitter and text alerts.
The public is encouraged to stay tuned to these communication channels during a snow event for parking restriction notification, information and updates.
Sign up for text alerts by texting ifalerts to 91011. The public also has the option to sign up to receive city news releases, emergency alerts and notifications by clicking on the round Notify Me button on the homepage of the city website.
