Nashua declares snow emergency starting at noon
NASHUA — The city has issued a snow emergency starting at noon Thursday.
Vehicles may not be parked on city streets from noon on Thursday until 8 a.m. on Friday, according to Justin Kates, director of emergency management.
“The snow emergency may be adjusted if weather conditions change,” he said in a statement. “The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning and is expecting between 10 and 14 inches of snow in the Nashua area.”
Kates warned that because of the extended timing of the storm, school sidewalk routes will likely not be cleared for the start of school on Friday and asked residents to plan accordingly.
“It is very challenging to keep streets clear with snowstorm conditions. If possible, please remain off the roads during this time for your safety, and to make room for equipment working to keep roads open,” he said.
Although cars may not park on the street or in municipal surface lots during the snow emergency, free parking is available at the Elm Street and High Street parking garages, explained Kates.
Any vehicles that remain parked on city streets may be towed, and it will cost owners $295 to retrieve their vehicles at the city landfill.
The public works snow line at 589-4795 is available for up-to-date information on the storm.
Nashua schools are not in session on Thursday.
