Annapolis, MD (12-18-09) — Mayor Joshua J. Cohen declared tonight that a snow emergency will go into effect as of 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 19, meaning that vehicles parked along emergency snow routes must be moved by then or risk being impounded.
Weather forecasts are projecting as much as two feet of snow to fall in the region into Sunday morning, and Mr. Cohen said that the removal of cars along key arteries will greatly assist Department of Public Works crews in keeping up with snow removal efforts.
A list of emergency snow routes and snow connector routes is available on the city’s Web site, www.annapolis.gov. Clearing emergency snow routes is the first priority. City emergency officials encourage affected residents to move their cars into public garages. Parking at city garages is free of charge. City officials greatly appreciate the cooperation of residents during this storm event.
