The City of Grosse Pointe Farms declared a snow emergency at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14, and will be in effect until 8 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 15, according to a NIXLE alert.

During a snow emergency, no on-street parking will be allowed except in cases in which there is no driveway provided to a specific private property, according to Grosse Pointe Farms.

Violators are subject to ticketing and/or towing of their vehicles. Additionally, the Public Safety Department will be clearing fire hydrants. Residents are asked to shovel out a hydrant in front of their property if possible.

Residents are reminded to not shovel or blow snow into a roadway, and could be ticketed. 

Grosse Pointe Farms shares the following winter tips to make the streets and sidewalks safer:
  • Do not plow snow onto the street or sidewalk. Snow thrown back into the street for “the traffic to melt,” only creates a snow pack that turns into ice, creating a hazardous condition. If you have a snow removal contractor, please advise them of this request. 
  • Do not allow children to play on the snow piles near the street. It may be fun, but it puts them in extreme danger from passing vehicles. 
  • When a snow event occurs, please move vehicles out of the street. Snow plows have to maneuver around parked cars and snow gets moved in places that can create additional inconveniences for you and your neighbors.
