A message from the City of Auburn about the new Business District Zone


In order to provide the best customer service possible, and to minimize the impact on our area businesses, the City of Auburn has created a Business District Zone that will be exempt during city wide parking bans. The purpose of providing this exempt zone is to allow our businesses the opportunity to conduct their normal operations during winter events. Parking bans are inconvenient to our businesses and residents, but they are necessary so the crews of Public Works have unobstructed access to all areas for snow plowing and ice control activities.

The exempt areas are defined in this map, highlighted in green. When city wide parking bans are called, these exempt areas will be allowed to use on-street parking between the hours of 7:00am to 11:00pm. It is critical that all vehicles in these zones are removed from the street between the hours of 11:00pm and 7:00am to allow Public Works to clear and remove snow. Vehicles found to be in violation will be towed at the owner's expense.

When a parking ban is called, notifications to area news outlets, e-alerts, posts to the City’s website, and various social media outlets will be made as soon as practical. In the event that an above average amount of snowfall is forecast, parking ban notifications will be made as soon as possible. Please consider signing up to receive alerts/emails when a parking ban has been called.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Auburn Public Works.
