--Schenectady, New York --- The City of Schenectady is preparing to deal with the impending snow storm that has been forecast for this area. In order to facilitate the most efficient snow removal, all vehicles must be moved off the City’s 16 Priority Streets as posted on the streets, which are listed below, once the snowfall reaches 3-inches. This will allow the City’s snow removal and plowing crews to make sure the main thoroughfares within the City are plowed and passable. Vehicles must remain off the Priority Streets until the snow has stopped falling and the streets have been cleared from curb to curb. Parking Enforcement Officers and City Police Officers will be issuing parking tickets to those vehicles remaining on the Priority Streets after 3” of snow has fallen. In some instances, vehicles may be towed to make way for the plows on these Priority Streets:

Van Vranken Avenue – Entire Length
Nott Street – Erie Blvd. to Wendell Avenue
Union Street – Entire Length
Eastern Avenue – Nott Terrace to McClellan Street
Brandywine Avenue – State Street to Rugby Road
McClellan Street – State Street to Rugby Road
State Street – Entire Length
Erie Blvd. – State Street to I-890 Entrance Ramps
Albany Street – Veeder Avenue to Elm Street
Altamont Avenue – Entire Length
Schuyler Street – Michigan Avenue to Altamont Avenue
Michigan Avenue – Brandywine Avenue to Chrisler Avenue
Crane Street – Broadway to City line
Chrisler Avenue – Altamont Avenue to Crane Street
Broadway – State Street south to City line
Campbell Avenue – Broadway to Fairview Avenue

We advise those of you who normally park on any of the listed Priority Streets to find another place to park until the snow has stopped falling and the streets have been cleared from curb to curb. Do not park on the street if there are still vehicles in front of or behind your parking area where the snow has not yet been plowed. In major storms, the plows will have to make several passes on each priority street to make sure they are completely cleared.
