A snow emergency has been declared by Mayor Mark Lauretti in Shelton, effective immediately on Monday, Jan. 25.

The declaration means that all on-street parking is suspended. Municipal lots may be used for parking.

The on-street parking ban will be in effect until further notice (the snowstorm is expected to last until late Tuesday).

The snow emergency was announced early Monday afternoon due to the impending blizzard, which could bring 2 to 3 feet of snow to Shelton and other parts of Connecticut.

'If possible'

A press release issued by the mayor's office late Monday afternoon states that people should try to park their vehicles off the street, in city or private lots or in driveways, "if possible."

When not possible, drivers should follow the winter-long even-side-of-the-road and odd-side of the-road rules to determine what side of a street to park on.
