Lansdale declares Snow Alert Saturday, February 17 effective 4pm.

On Saturday, February 17 the Lansdale Borough Police Department will declare a Snow Alert effective at 4:00 pm. Due to the forecast of potential considerable accumulations, the alert will stay in effect until further notice. For citizens, a snow alert means that all vehicles parked on those streets where signage indicates no parking during a snow alert are required, by law, to be moved elsewhere in order to allow snow plowing of the road surface. Snow alert signage dictates which side of the street residents may not park on when an alert is declared. Residents may park in their driveways (if available), alternate side of their street or another street not marked "No Parking." It is not the policy of the Borough to direct any resident or citizen where to park (i.e. we do not require residents to park in alleys when a snow alert is declared), we can only instruct where parking is not permitted.
These parking restrictions are put into place for the purpose of public safety as well as the efficiency of snow clearing on Borough streets; vehicles in violation are subject to ticketing and/or towing by the Lansdale Borough Police Department.

We would also like to remind residents and business owners that it is illegal to deposit snow removed from sidewalks or private property onto any Borough street.

The Borough is prepared for the snow event with crews out preparing known trouble spots and will remain on call until after the Snow Alert is lifted. The Borough also asks citizens to be neighborly and check on elderly or vulnerable neighbors who may need assistance.

It will be posted on the website and social media channels when the Snow Alert is lifted and residents can resume normal parking.

Ordinance 1172 – Section 302.3.3 prohibits the throwing or blowing of snow into the abutting streets from sidewalk or properties. Violators are subject to fines.
