Winter parking rules began November 1 and go through April 1. No parking is allowed on any city street between the hours of 1 and 6 a.m. There is also no parking allowed immediately after accumulation of two inches or more of continuous snow until the street is plowed curb to curb. Violators will be ticketed and/or towed.
Help snowplow crews prevent property damage by making sure no large objects, including ornaments and planters, are within six feet of the street edge, and fasten your mailbox securely to its post. Damage done to items within the 14-foot right-of-way—sprinkler heads, fences, decorative landscaping, or other objects—is the property owner’s responsibility. Also, please keep fire hydrants and mail boxes clear to assist the City and other service providers. If there is a fire hydrant on or near your property, please adopt it for the winter and clear an area approximately three feet around the hydrant and shovel a straight path from the hydrant to the street.
Vadnais Heights clears snow from streets first, and then from high-volume sidewalks and trails used to serve businesses or schools, or where snowplow deposits are significant along County roads. Next, the City clears other trails and sidewalks.
If you have questions about winter parking rules, please call City Hall at 651-204-6000.
