Westfield, NJ Police Department
Thursday February 18th, 2021 :: 11:21 a.m. EST


Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect. Plowing to begin shortly -- please remove all cars from the street.

A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect through 7:00PM on Friday, with total snow accumulations of 4-8 inches expected, along with slippery road conditions.

▪️ Public Works will begin plowing operations shortly. Please remove all cars from the street. Public ordinance 2070 prohibits parking on any street in Westfield when three or more inches of snow have fallen until snowfall stops and the entire width of the road has been plowed. The Westfield Police Department will issue tickets for violations of this ordinance. Under these circumstances, the shoveling or blowing of snow into a plowed street is also banned.

▪️ Downtown residents without driveways may park in Lot 1 behind Farinolio/Chipotle. Lot 3 at the south side train station will also be made available temporarily for off-street parking as the demand for commuter spaces in that location has been reduced due to the pandemic. 

▪️ In addition, the following locations are subject to alternate side of the street parking after three inches of snow have fallen, and vehicles need to park on the side of the street with even house numbers (except for Ross Place).

  • 400 & 500 block of Downer Street
  • 400 block of First Street
  • Livingston Street
  • Cacciola Place
  • Cowperthwaite Place between Elm and Clark Streets
  • 300 & 400 block of Lenox Avenue
  • 200 block of St. Paul Street
  • Entire length of Ross Place (park on the side with odd numbers only)
▪️ Grand Sanitation is continuing to pick up recycling today in Zone 4 as road conditions permit. If all collections cannot be completed, we will communicate those details later today with rescheduling information. 

▪️ Updates, including plowing alerts and public safety information, will be posted on the Town’s website
( and social media channels, as well as through Nixle.
