(Fargo, ND) -- Seasonal night parking restrictions within The City of Fargo begin November 1st, continue through April 15th and will restrict parking on the street between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m.

These restrictions allow City employees to remove snow and perform critical street maintenance. The cost and time required for snow removal doubles when crews must return to the area and plow after illegally-parked vehicles have been moved.

Citizens can help reduce costs and remove snow more efficiently by complying with the seasonal parking restrictions. Restrictions also ensure ample space for Fire Department equipment to safely reach homes in times of emergency. Street signs noting the restrictions are located in the affected areas, which are as follows:

  • From 19th Ave. N. to 13th Ave. S.
  • From the Red River to 25th St. N. and S.
  • Any other area designated by the appropriate signs

These areas include sections of the city where parking is restricted on Fridays and the central business district, which has year-round downtown overnight parking restrictions.

The night parking restrictions apply on alternate days as follows:

  • Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays: east/west avenues
  • Tuesday, Thursdays and Saturdays: north/south streets

Additional seasonal restrictions (November 1st – April 15th) were approved in 2011 limiting parking to one side of the street or avenue. Street signs noting the restrictions are located in the affected areas as follows:

  • From 12th Ave. N. to I-94
  • From the Red River to 25th St. N. and S., including the Madison Neighborhood

All seasonal parking policies will be actively enforced, especially during times of snowfall. Vehicles violating the policy may be ticketed and impounded by the Fargo Police Department or a contracted service provider.
