SNOW EMERGENCY PARKING FOR SALEM CITY RESIDENTS
[February 15, 2013] This is to inform city of Salem residents that there are no more seasonal permits available for temporary on-site parking at Salem State University’s O’Keefe parking lot during a city declared snow emergency. The number of permits is limited to 100 on a first come/first served basis, and they have all been issued.
A reminder to those residents who secured a permit is that your permit is only valid in the designated area near the Lussier Street end of the O’Keefe Center Lot. The designated area is marked by signs indicating “During Snow Emergency Municipal Permit Parking Only.” Vehicles that do not display a valid permit or that are not parked in the designated area are subject to citation and towing at the expense of the owner.
Permit parking for Salem city residents is only allowable during a city declared snow emergency. All permitted vehicles must be removed from the university property within one hour after the city’s cancellation of the snow emergency (weekends included) or they will be towed at the owner’s expense.
