NEW BRITAIN – A parking ban is set to start at 9 a.m. Wednesday morning, according to Mayor Erin Stewart.
Central Connecticut will likely see between eight and 18 inches of snow starting Wednesday morning and continuing to Thursday morning, WFSB-TV Meteorologist Mark Dixon said.
Free parking will be available at the following locations during the ban: Osgood Park, Stanley Golf Course, Quonset hut parking lot at 655 Slater Road, city parking lot at Wildwood St. and Linden St. to next to the police substation, Washington Park in the lot opposite Gold Street, Martha Hart Park, in the city parking garages at Bank St. and Chestnut St. and Columbus Blvd. at the corner of Washington St., and the Pulaski Club at 89 Grove St. which has more than 90 parking paces.
Police will be out in force in the overnight hours Tuesday into Wednesday and during the storm asking motorists to move their illegal parked vehicles.
All vehicles parked on city streets while the ban is in effect are subject to a $100.00 parking ticket and will be towed at the owner’s expense. Residents are urged to cooperate with the parking ban so as to facilitate the removal of snow from city streets, authorities said.
