The Mt. Pleasant City Commission recently passed an ordinance allowing additional on-street parking and declaration of snow emergencies. If a snow emergency is declared by City staff, on-street parking will NOT be permitted.
During a snow emergency, failure to remove vehicles from the street will result in a ticket. Towing may be utilized if ticketing has proven ineffective and/or the vehicles parked on the street cause a delay in snow removal.
Notice of when a snow emergency is declared, and later lifted, will be provided through the city’s social media channels, blog https://mpcityblog.com/, community information phone line (989-779-5320), local media notification, and an email alert.
To receive an email notification, sign up to receive the city’s monthly eConnections newsletter by visiting http://www.mt-pleasant.org/news/e-news.asp.
Other parking ordinance guidelines are as follows:
- Overnight street parking is allowed throughout the City of Mt. Pleasant year-round, except for the Downtown area.
- Downtown street parking is prohibited from 4 – 6 a.m. year-round.
- When a snow emergency is declared, all cars must be removed from the street.
