Iowa City's snow emergency ordinance is designed to limit on-street parking during a snow emergency to allow plows to access and clear the entire street during extreme winter storms.

This policy has major effects on those who park their vehicles on Iowa City streets outside of the Central Business District located in the Downtown area.

Pay attention to these policies to avoid the inconvenience and expense of tickets and towing. Vehicles found in violation will incur a $50 fine per incident, plus the cost of towing and storage.
