The City of Somerville will lift its snow emergency as of 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 5. Residents parked in municipal or school lots during the snow emergency will have a two-hour window starting at that time in which to move their vehicles. Cars still parked in City lots at 8:30 p.m. may be subject to ticketing and towing.
Per City ordinance, property owners have six daylight hours following the lifting of a snow emergency in which to clear snow and ice from sidewalks. Paths must be shoveled to a minimum width of 42 inches, and snow may not be shoveled into the street. Failure to comply with these regulations will result in fines.
