Eagle Ranch on street parking

With snow piling up around town, Eagle Public Works and Eagle Police remind local residents to abide by the odd/even parking rules at Eagle Ranch.

Signs are posted through the neighborhood to inform residents about the rules. When a “snow event” occurs — meaning when two or more inches accumulates — no parking is allowed along on odd numbered sides of the street on odd numbered calendar days. There is no parking on even numbered sides of the street on even numbered calendar days. The restrictions are in place from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Additionally, the Eagle Ranch Associations asks residents not to park in alleys during snow events, because alleys must also be cleared.

And finally, residents are reminded not to throw snow into the street when they shovel snow from sidewalks or driveways. When the plows pass by, they will simply push that snow back. What’s more, the homeowner is just creating a problem for his or herself, because the snow that is thrown into the street will soon turn into ice right at the end of your driveway.
