Winter Precipitation & Snow Removal Parking Bans
With the threat of snow during the winter season, please keep the following in mind:
- After a snowfall of 3 inches or more: parking is prohibited on both sides of a street for a period of 12 hours after the snowfall stops (per Hinsdale Village Ordinance) 6-6-2. In the event of an impending snowstorm, residents are asked to park their vehicles in the garage or driveway. Please ensure that sidewalks are not blocked by vehicles; this impedes the progress of sidewalk plowing operations.
- Plowing operations are based on a priority system. Main roads and well-traveled routes, such as those leading to schools, are plowed first.
- It may take 8-12 hours to clear roads after a heavy snowfall.
- Limit travel when possible. Cars that become stuck in the road will block the street preventing snow removal.
- An unfortunate consequence of the snow removal program is the side delivery of snow from plows, resulting in the discharge of snow toward the curb and driveway aprons. The Village suggests waiting until plows have cleared the street before cleaning the driveway apron. If possible, throw snow on the parkway to the right of the driveway (when facing the street). Subsequent snow plow passes will then push this extra snow away from the driveway rather than into the driveway.
For questions or concerns regarding snow removal, please contact Public Services at 630-789-7030 Monday - Friday, between the hours of 7:00am and 3:30pm. Outside of regular business hours, please contact the Police Department's Non-Emergency Line at 630-789-7070.
