Mayor Thomas M. Menino declared a snow emergency today that will include a parking ban that goes into effect at 2 p.m.
The city issued the following guidelines:
•The city encourages businesses to release employees early. Rush hour is expected to see the storm’s heaviest snowfall. Everyone is encouraged to use public transportation.
•All City of Boston afternoon and evening activities will be canceled.
•Move cars from main arterials during snow emergencies. A listing of main arterials can be found here.
•Do not park cars within 20 feet of an intersection. Parking too close to an intersection can restrict emergency vehicle access.
•Do not throw snow back into the street. “Throwbacks” force the city to remove snow from the same street twice.
•Shovel out fire hydrants close to your home.
•Property owners are reminded to shovel snow from sidewalks that abut homes and businesses.
•Do not double park.
•Keep wheelchair ramps clear.
•Check on elderly and neighbors and others in need.
