Dover’s winter parking ban begins Dec. 1
In parking lots behind the City Library, along Third Street and at School Street, Simons said it’s important to park in designated areas — such as near the railroad tracks at the Third Street parking lot — to prevent snowplows from burying vehicles.
“This has been going on for decades — it’s a calendar-based parking ban,” Simons said, adding most residents and landlords are aware of the ban, which is enforced regardless of the weather.
For the past two weeks, Simon said parking officials have been leaving informative notices on cars in the downtown to alert new residents — especially students from the University of New Hampshire — about the parking rules.
“The goal is to tow as few cars as possible during snowstorms,” Simons said, adding towing causes significant delays to snow removal crews and is troublesome for residents.
