Winter Parking Information

In November 2022, the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved an amendment to the  Winter Parking Ordinance. The amendment further enhances the Sheriff’s office’s ability to enforce violations. The amendment goes into effect December 15, 2022. It enhances the November 2017 Winter Parking Ordinance 2017-11. This ordinance prohibits parking at all times along County maintained rights-of-way between November 1 and April 1 and allows for the civil enforcement of parking restrictions either by citation (not less than $200 fine) or towing. This ordinance is intended to help reduce the detrimental effects of snow play, which create safety hazards for visitors and adversely impact area residents’ quality of life through illegal parking, littering and trespassing on private property.
