Please be reminded of the strict parking restrictions that will go into effect during any winter snowfall. These restrictions were instituted after careful study and the review of complaints from the Police, Fire, Ambulance and snow removal personnel. These restrictions were adopted by the Board of Supervisors under ordinance #375 which prohibits on street parking during any snowfall.Section 168-9C of the ordinance reads "During any snowfall or any snow emergency which has been declared throughout the Township, it shall be unlawful to park any vehicle on any street within the Township until the snow has been completely plowed for the full width of the cartway. Where only on street parking is available, all motor vehicles shall be parked on the even address side of the street on even numbered calendar days, and on odd address side of the street on odd numbered calendar days. Violation of this ordinance constitutes a $30.00 fine."Parking in cul-de-sacs is another problem that has caused serious delays for emergency vehicles. All vehicles parked in cul-de-sacs must be parked with wheels parallel to the curb. Angle parking is not permitted at any time and the prohibition of street parking during snowfall also applies.Property owners are reminded that sidewalks are required to have at least a 30 inch path cleared within 24 hours after a snow. Residents are also reminded not to throw snow from your sidewalks and driveway onto the roads. Also, please be aware that the Snow Ordinance has been amended to include: Sidewalks or Township right-of-ways which means if any owner, agent, occupant of property, or person in charge of the property allows snow to be pushed, plowed, thrown or shoveled onto a right-of-way or sidewalk they will be subject to a fine. Throwing snow onto a roadway or township right-of-way is a violation of township ordinance and punishable with up to a $600.00 fine. Your cooperation is vital to keep snow and debris off the roadway and allow emergency vehicles to get to the emergency locations. Please check your mail boxes to make sure it is sound and at least 6" behind the face of the curb. Mailboxes which hang out past the curb might be damaged during snow plowing operations. East Norriton Township and the Norriton Fire Department also request that all fire hydrants that are located in front of your home also be cleared of snow
