As winter approaches, the Department of Emergency Management would like to remind residents of the parking restrictions during “Declared Snow Emergencies”. Although not every snowfall requires a Snow Emergency Declaration, there are storms that produce significant snow accumulation hindering the movement of traffic to the extent that it is necessary for the Township to declare a “Snow Emergency.” Once a Snow Emergency is declared, residents are required to remove all vehicles from all Township streets during the snow emergency. Information on the existence of a snow emergency will be given through the Township website at www.ustwp.org, the Township Facebook page, CBS3 News, WPVI-TV 6ABC, NBC10 News and FOX29 News. Residents are asked to check this media during snow fall to keep up with current information.
Parking is prohibited on snow emergency routes during the declared snow emergency. All streets in the Township of Upper Southampton are designated as snow emergency routes. After a snow emergency is declared, it shall be unlawful, at any time during the continuance of the snow emergency, for any person to park a motor vehicle or to allow that vehicle to remain parked anywhere on any Township street. The police department is authorized to issue parking citations and remove vehicles parked on any Township street during a snow emergency.
Thank you for your cooperation.
