Newark, NJ--Newark Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose is asking residents to observe the city’s “No Parking When Roads Are Snow Covered” ordinance in preparation for heavy wind, rain and snow predicted to begin Tuesday night, with potential snow and sleet accumulations of 6 to 10 inches possible by Wednesday.

Off-street parking is recommended during snow storms, with signs posted throughout the city to notify motorists of the streets designated for no parking during snow storms. 

Motorists and residents are urged to look for signs to identify the streets where the parking ban will be enforced and are asked to park their cars on odd numbered sides of their blocks due to the expected snowfall.

Downed trees and power lines are possible due to high winds and heavy snowfall. 

The City of Newark offers winter shelters at 224-238 Sussex Avenue and at the John F. Kennedy Recreation Center at 211 West Kinney Street. Street cleaning and garbage pickup is suspected tomorrow.

Home and property owners are responsible for clearing snow and ice from all private residential and commercial property, including areas in and around driveways, sidewalks and walkways. The city does not provide snow removal services to private residential or commercial property.

Residents are encouraged to observe ‘good neighbor’ tenets while weathering the snowstorm by abiding by the following laws:

  • Park vehicles in your driveway, so that the plows can get through to remove snow and ice.
  • If possible, share your driveway with neighbors or secure vehicles on off-street lots.
  • Clear snow and ice from the sidewalk in front of your storefront or home.
  • Do not throw snow into the street. Place the snow on your lawn, on the side of your home or in the rear of the property.
  • Remove snow and ice from hydrants and/or drains near your home.
  • If you must venture out, take public transportation or carpool where possible.

For a list of Snow Emergency Routes where no parking is allowed, residents can visit newarknj.gov/snow, call the Non-Emergency Help Center at (973) 733-4311 or watch Newark Municipal Access Television (Cablevision TV78, FiOS Channel 28).

The Non-Emergency Help Center at (973) 733-4311 is available for lists of Snow Emergency Routes, to report snow and ice complaints and to reach the No-Heat Hotline.

The Department of Public Safety is coordinating responses to weather-related emergencies and other incidents through the combined use of Police, Fire, Office of Emergency Management Personnel, and other city services at the Emergency Operations Center, located at 480 Clinton Avenue.
