CHANGES TO ALTERNATE STREET PARKING REGULATIONS
The Village of Johnson City has placed new local laws concerning Alternate Street Parking into effect.
Alternate Street Parking will now be in effect from December 1st through April 1st; therefore alternate street parking does not take effect this November 1st as it has in the past.
Under the new provisions, parking is permitted on the even side of the street on even calendar days until 4:59 p.m. The even side of the street shall be that side of the street having even residence house numbers. Parking is permitted on the odd side of the street on odd calendar days. The odd side of the street shall be that side of the street having odd residence house numbers.
Parking shall be permitted from 5:00 p.m. daily and shall be in effect until 4:59 p.m. the following day.
After 5:00 p.m., on even days, drivers should park for the next day, on the odd side of the street. After 5:00 p.m. on odd days, drivers should park on the even side of the street.
From the first day of December through the fifth day of December, inclusive, in each year, persons who violate this article 264-33 shall be given written warning tickets only and shall not be liable for any penalty or punishment.
Also under the new provisions, Village streets designated as ‘Red-Line Streets’ will now also be designated ‘Snow Emergency Routes’. Parking will be prohibited on these streets following a two inch or more snowfall until the street is plowed. A complete list of said streets are listed in the Village Code; § 264-100.
Overnight parking in metered zones is prohibited from December 1st through April 1st, from the hours of 12:01 a.m. to 6:00 a.m.
Example #1: A resident parks their vehicle for the night at 5:00 PM on November 1st and does not plan on moving the vehicle until the next day. The vehicle should be parked on the Even side of the street, because the following day the date will be November 2nd.
Example #2: A resident parks their vehicle on December 31st at 5:00 PM and will not move the vehicle until the following day. The vehicle should be parked on the odd side of the street, because January 1st will also be an odd numbered day. Many residents forget this detail, and park their vehicles on the wrong side of the street by mistake.
