The City of Saint Paul announced the launch of a FREE Saint Paul Winter Snow Parking App TODAY. The Saint Paul Winter Snow Parking app provides notifications when snow emergencies are declared; information on when and where people need to move vehicles; an interactive map showing where people can and cannot park during all phases of the snow emergency; basic snow emergency parking rules; towing; and contact information for questions.
“We are always working on ways to improve compliance during snow emergencies in order to reduce ticketing and towing,” stated Saint Paul Public Works Director Kathy Lantry. “Better compliance results in faster and better plowed streets for everyone. The Saint Paul Winter Snow Parking app provides us with another tool to communicate with all people who live, work and play in Saint Paul.”
The app guides users through a snow emergency by sending notifications when the snow emergency is declared, one hour prior to night and day parking restrictions going into effect, and when snow emergency parking restrictions have been lifted. The app also allows the City to send other important information to smart phones during a snow emergency.
The launch of Saint Paul Winter Snow Parking app is another innovation the Department of Public Works is implementing to improve compliance during snow emergencies. The City currently offers SnowAlerts via email and text messages in 4 languages.
