Winter parking restrictions begin Nov. 1

Old man winter got a head start over cities’ winter parking restrictions, causing many images like this with plows having to weave around cars that are still legally parking on the street.

Typically, the first plowable snowfall hasn’t taken place as of yet, however Tuesday night’s storm provided perfect examples for the need for parking restrictions on city streets. While vehicle owners essentially got a “free pass” with this first snowfall, city officials remind residents that starting Sunday, Nov. 1, winter parking restrictions will be in full force.

Below are the specific times and conditions when no parking will be enforced.

Isanti - No parking on any city street between 1-8 a.m. from Nov. 1 through March 31. Parking is permitted from 6-8 a.m. if there is no snow or it has been removed. 

The city removes snow within the city limits on public sidewalks and trails for every 2-inch or more snow event. 

Cambridge - No parking on any city street between 2-7 a.m. from Nov. 1 through March 31. The city will plow for every 3 inches or more snow event. 

Braham - No parking on any city street between 2-7 a.m. from Nov. 1 through March 31.

North Branch - No parking on any city street between 1-5 a.m. and city parking lots from 2-5 a.m. from Nov. 1 through March 31. 

Rush City - No parking on any city street from 2-6 a.m. from Nov. 1 through April 15. No parking on streets any time snowfall exceeds 3 inches until streets are cleared.
