Scheduled Downtown Street Cleaning

Scheduled Downtown street cleaning has begun and will continue throughout the spring and summer, ending on Friday, Sept. 24, 2021. Street cleaning operations take place overnight between the hours of midnight and 7 a.m. and vehicles must be removed from scheduled streets during this time. It is the driver’s responsibility to look up when the street is scheduled for cleaning and to move their vehicle(s) accordingly; the City does not post signs for street cleaning.

Unlike snow removal, the downtown street cleaning schedule is pre-determined for the entire season. That means if you park overnight on a downtown street you can look up all the dates in 2021 that cleaning is scheduled for that street; mark them in your calendar now as a reminder to move your vehicle before street cleaning operations begin.
 
On the scheduled date(s) vehicles must be removed from the affected streets by midnight and cannot be returned until after 7 a.m., regardless of whether street cleaning has taken place. Failure to remove the vehicle may result in a ticket being issued.
 
Streets may not be cleaned on their scheduled date(s) for reasons such as parked cars, extreme weather, mechanical or other issues.
