City prepares for snowstorm – Residents Encouraged to Move Vehicles to City Garages Beginning at 6 p.m.
Annapolis, MD (March 20, 2018) – The National Weather Service is predicting Annapolis will receive 6 to 8 inches of snow overnight tonight, throughout Wednesday and into the evening hours tomorrow. Mayor Gavin Buckley encourages residents, especially those parked on snow emergency routes, to move their vehicles to the city garages beginning at 6 p.m. TODAY, since parked cars on area streets are the biggest challenge for snow crews.
City parking garages will open, free of charge, at 6 p.m., Tuesday, March 20, for Annapolis City residents. Please park your vehicles in driveways so plows can clear as much snow as possible, or consider going to one of the following designated parking garages:
· Noah Hillman Parking Garage – 150 Gorman Street
· Gotts Court Parking Garage – 25 Northwest Street
· Knighton Parking Garage – 1A Colonial Avenue
· Park Place - 5 Park Place

This link to the City’s Public Works Department page, under Snow Information, will list Snow Emergency Routes, Snow Connector Routes and the City’s Snow Plan.
Annapolis Office of Emergency Management is monitoring the storm and will activate on Wednesday, March 21, at 7 a.m. The Annapolis Call Center also will open for all non-emergency calls. Annapolis residents can call 410-260-2211 regarding road conditions or any non-emergency, snow-related questions.
Tomorrow’s regularly scheduled yard waste and bulk trash collection currently is still scheduled. The City’s Transit schedule also is currently on schedule.
