ITHACA, NY – The City of Ithaca’s winter month Odd/Even Parking Regulation will go into effect this Tuesday, November 1, 2016 – April 1, 2017.
This is an annual, city-wide, regulation that prohibits parking between 2:00 AM – 6:00 AM on the odd-numbered side of the street on odd-numbered days and the even-numbered side of the street on even-numbered days.
Using simple terms: when you park your vehicle for the night on November 1st, park on the side of the street where the house numbers are odd as you should not be not parked on the even side of the street between 2:00 AM – 6:00 AM on November 2nd. When you park for the night on November 2nd, park on the side of the street where the house numbers are even, so you will not be parked on the odd side of the street between 2:00 AM – 6:00AM on November 3rd.
PLEASE NOTE: October, December, January, and March have 31 days. On the 31st day of those months, when you park your vehicle for the night, park on the side of the street where the house numbers are EVEN so you will not be parked on the odd numbered side of the street between 2:00 AM – 6:00 AM on the 1st.
If your street only has parking on one side of the street, you may have to find parking on a nearby street on the alternate days. Information regarding streets that are exempt from the odd/even parking can be found below.
Violators of this parking regulation will be ticketed, so please contact the City Chamberlain’s Office (607) 274-6580 if you have questions or need additional information.
