Snow Removal (SEP)

Snow Emergency for Parking

“Snow Emergency for Parking” ordinance is now in effect for anyone who parks a motor vehicle between November 15 and April 1 on the following UW-Platteville streets:

  • University Plaza
  • Greenwood Avenue between Longhorn Drive and the west end
  • College Drive from Greenwood Avenue to Sunset Drive

When a Snow Emergency for Parking is called, students must park their cars as follows:

  • A DAYS = Park on the "A" side of the street (South/East).  Look for the signs posted "A" and park on that side of the street.
    • Cemetery side of Greenwood, Wilgus side of College, Royce side of University Plaza
  • B DAYS = Park on the "B" side of the street (North/West)  Look for the signs posted "B" and park on that side of the street.
    • Res. Hall side of Greenwood, Melcher side of College, Apartment side of University Plaza

When a Snow Emergency for Parking  is in effect for a two day period! 

FAILURE TO COMPLY WILL RESULT IN A $50 CITATION AND YOUR VEHICLE WILL BE TOWED (MINIMUM $100 FEE).

A Snow Emergency for Parking decision will be made by no later than 3:00 p.m. for the parking restriction to go into effect at 2:00 a.m. on the following date.

Again, SEP will occur for a TWO DAY PERIOD, so that both sides of the street get plowed. A longer period of removal may be designated if more time is required to adequately clear the streets.  For specific dates, check your UW-Platteville email, hall postings or your hall's main desk.

EXAMPLE

If a Snow Emergency for Parking is declared, all vehicles on the streets will have to be parked on the A Side (South or East sides) of the streets by no later than 2:00 a.m. on posted A Day.

On the second night of Snow Emergency for Parking, vehicles on the streets will have to be parked on the B Side (North or West sides) of the streets by no later than 2:00 a.m. on posted B Day.
