FRISCO – If you’re thinking about leaving your car parked in the street overnight in Frisco, think again.

Frisco police are requesting drivers’ cooperation in keeping the streets and sidewalks clear of snow. Drivers can help by adhering to the town’s on-street parking and snow-removal regulations.

According to Frisco Police Chief Tom Wickman, illegally parked cars could be ticketed or towed to allow for snow plowing.

“Plowing is the main impetus behind this. We want the streets to be clear when people start moving, around 7 a.m.,” Wickman said.

Parking is prohibited in the town’s commercial core from 2 a.m. till 6 a.m. and on residential streets from midnight till 6 a.m. The restrictions apply to all streets, alleys and rights of ways.

The town has erected about 100 signs alerting drivers of the regulations.

Vehicles left on the town’s snow routes affect snow removal operations and stall efforts to clear the streets by morning.

The police department has designated two overnight parking areas for drivers who don’t have access to a driveway or parking lot.

The parking lot on Fourth Avenue and Granite Street has about 14 spaces, and drivers will find ample parking at the lot on West Main Street across from Forest Street, just past Fiesta Jalisco restaurant.

Police officers will issue bright orange warning flyers on the windshields of first-time offenders and record license plate numbers.

Further offenses will result in tickets and/or towing.

For anyone planning a party or other large gathering, temporary parking permits are available at the police department at town hall.

Vehicle owners displaying permits on the dashboard are entitled to park on town streets, provided the vehicle is parked safely and does not interfere with the flow of traffic or street maintenance.
