Due to the anticipated weather conditions on Friday and Saturday, Dover Police Chief Anthony F. Colarusso, Jr. announces the citywide winter parking ban will now extend to 6 a.m. on Sunday, April 2. The citywide winter parking ban typically expires on April 1. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Dover from Friday morning through Saturday afternoon, during which time Dover could receive between six to 10 inches of wet, heavy snow.

The parking ban requires that no vehicle be parked on any city street or sidewalk between the hours of 1 and 6 a.m. Vehicles may park in city controlled parking lots and the garage during this time without the need for a parking permit; however, the daytime rules of each particular parking lot must be followed.

All City parking lots have specific areas where overnight parking is allowed. Drivers should look for signs in the lots indicating which rows are available. There is no overnight parking in any public parking spaces in the Orchard Street parking lot. Overnight parking is available in the parking garage.

Vehicles found in violation of the winter parking ban will be issued a $15 parking ticket. Vehicles interfering with snow removal may be towed.
