With a winter storm approaching, the City of Iowa City reminds residents to have a plan in place ahead of the storm.

We ask that residents avoid parking on the street so that snow plows can clear the roads as quickly as possible. 

Residents should also have a plan to clear sidewalks of snow and ice 24 hours after accumulation ends. This rule applies for any snow storm of more than one inch.

If there's a curb ramp near your house, be a good neighbor and clear them of snow and ice as well.
