In an effort to allow some parking on city streets in multi-family housing areas during snow events, the City is starting a pilot project in three areas of the city. Please see the Snow Event Parking - Pilot Project webpage for more information.

Notify staff of damage done to the City boulevard or your mailbox from a snow plow by filling out the Repair Form.

Maintenance Crews Need Your Help!

Snow and ice removal on our city’s streets is time consuming. To do the best job in the quickest amount of time, we need the cooperation and assistance of our citizens. No parking is allowed when there has been 2 inches or more of continuous snowfall. The parking ban on the street lasts until it has been plowed curb to curb.

The city is not responsible for snow buildup in front of your driveway.


  • Call 651-792-7004 to report hazardous conditions or for information related to Street snow plowing.
  • Call 651-792-7006 to report hazardous conditions or for information related to Pathway snow plowing.
  • Know and understand the Street Snow and Ice Control Policy (PDF).
  • Know and understand the Pathway Snow Plowing Policy (PDF).
  • Keep up on the weather forecast and be prepared for conditions.
  • Drive defensively and according to road conditions.
  • Be patient…an average snowfall of 4” takes approximately 8 hours to plow and apply ice control
  • Expect maintenance vehicles to back up frequently.
  • Notify the city if you are having visibility problems at intersections because of high snow banks
  • Shovel in front of your mailbox-the post office will not deliver mail if they cannot get close enough to reach the mailbox from their vehicle.
  • Assist the Fire Department by cleaning snow away from hydrants-ask your neighbors for help in this area if age or physical limitations prevent you from clearing snow.


  • Don’t park your car on the street after a 2” snowfall until the street has been plowed curb to curb. When 2” of snow has accumulated, on-street parking is banned and vehicles could be ticketed and/or towed.
  • Don’t throw the snow from your driveway onto the street or sidewalk (Minnesota Statute 160.27, Subdivision 5).
  • Don’t place garbage cans in the street or on the boulevard-they belong in the driveway.
  • Keep children from building tunnels and forts in the snow banks along streets and driveways. This is a very dangerous area to be playing, as city crews wing snow back to create more storage area near the edge of the street.
  • Don’t assume plow drivers can see you--their field of vision is limited.
  • Stay 70 feet (4 car lengths) from the maintenance vehicle so the driver can see you.
  • Never pass on the right, as plows are pushing snow and spreading ice control to the right.

City Ordinance 602.09

No parking after snowfall
No person shall park any vehicle, except in compliance with directions of a police officer or in compliance with regulatory parking signs, on any street for a period of 48 hours commencing immediately after any 2 inches or more continuous snowfall or until snow removal has been completed on any street.

State Statute 160.2715

Minnesota Statute 160.2715 Section (a) subdivision (1) advises that pushing / blowing snow from driveways and sidewalks onto public roads may be punishable as a misdemeanor. Snow deposited or left on roadways creates a real hazard to passing motorists which can cause serious accidents. Even heavy snowplows have been damaged when hitting compacted and frozen snow deposited on the roadways. Because the practice is illegal to begin with, the person depositing the snow, as the prime cause of the accident, may also find him/herself faced with civil liability lawsuits. The City of Roseville’s Public Works Department urges you, as good neighbors and motorists, not to add to the hazards of winter time driving.
