We hope you moved your car! The Department of Public Works reports it will be implementing a new and improved street sweeping program this year:

DPW conducted a study of the sweeping program and found that rerouting the sweepers would increase efficiency and allow us to increase the number of streets we can sweep regularly. Another plus of the new program is that it has a specific start date – March 1 (barring any snow) – and end date – October 31 – each year. That information is on the signs so that everyone knows when parking restrictions will be in effect. Parking enforcement of residential sweeping violations will begin Monday, March 12.

In residential neighborhoods where there are no signs identifying parking restrictions, sweeping will occur twice a month.
