The city of Beloit has declared a snow emergency which will take effect at 11:59 p.m. Thursday (Feb. 21) and will remain in effect until noon Friday (Feb. 22).
What this means for drivers: During this time all vehicles are prohibited from parking on city streets until the storm has passed and the snow has been cleared from the streets. If the owner, or operator, of any vehicle does not attend to its removal, the Beloit Police Department may ticket and/or move such vehicle at the owner's expense to some other suitable location so as not to interfere with snow removal and plowing.
Due to downtown construction, the east-bound lane may be temporarily closed. The lane will be reopened once the snow can be removed, restoring east-bound traffic.
Campus parking clarification: The college has annexed the 700 block of Emerson Street (the block that has Cradle Care and LAPC), the 800 block of College Street (by the fraternities) and the 700 block of Clary Street (by the C-Haus and OEC), so if you are parked legally on those streets, you may remain there during the snow emergency. The angle parking on both sides of the street on the 600 block of College Street (by WAC) should be fine too. Parking is also available in our various on campus parking lots.
