A snowstorm is slated to hit Iowa City this Saturday, bringing large amounts of snow. Forecasts predict anywhere between six to eight inches of total accumulation on Saturday, Jan. 1, 2022.

The City is urging all residents to park their cars off-street so plows can efficiently clear roads of snow. If off-street parking is not available, residents should consider alternative parking arrangements. For example, vehicles can be moved to a Downtown Parking ramp. Vehicles can be parked at any of the ramps listed below for overnight storage.

Ramp parking will be free both Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 2, 2022, due to the holiday weekend. Regular enforcement will begin again at 7 a.m. Monday, Jan. 3, 2022.

If off-street parking is not an option, the City urges residents to avoid parking directly across the street from other parked cars. This gives snow plow operators as much space as possible. Please follow odd/even parking guidelines on streets with this signage.
