Winter Parking Ban Begins 12/01/2016

As a reminder; the Oswego Common Council recently adopted a revised winter parking ban which goes into effect beginning tonight (Thursday, December 1, 2016 at 12:00 am for “Residential Areas” and 2:00 am for the “Downtown Area”).

The Winter Parking Ban States: There shall be imposed a ban on parking on all streets within the city limits of the City of Oswego from December 1st of each year until March 31st of the following year. The Mayor may, at the Mayor’s discretion, initiate the ban earlier than December 1st, or extend the ban beyond March 31st, based upon weather conditions. During the period of the ban, no vehicle may park on the streets of the City of Oswego.

The only exception to the ban will be for winter parking permits applied for, and issued, pursuant to section 257-27-D of the City Code.

Additionally, free overnight parking is also available in the following municipal lots:


Former Flexo-Wire (West 1st / West Schuyler)
Breitbeck Park Lots
Wrights Landing
West First Street - South of the US Post Office


Fort Pool Parking Lot
Lot across from Little Lukes/Riley School (Burkle Street)

Oswego Police will issue courtesy citations for the first few nights of the ban but, after that, violators will be subject to ticketing and towing.
