11/7/2018 | ODD/EVEN PARKING
VILLAGE OF WATKINS GLEN ODD/EVEN PARKING ** PLEASE READ CAREFULLY…this is opposite from past practice, but follows the law as written. The Village of Watkins Glen enforces ODD/EVEN parking each year from November 1st thru March 31st. Everyone’s cooperation in this matter will help with cleanup during leaf and snow removal operations and makes village streets safer throughout the winter months. This law pertains to all streets East of Franklin Street within the Village unless otherwise posted. Per Local Law #2 of 2012, section 105 (d): Parking is PROHIBITED from 12:01 am – 6:00 pm on odd-numbered side of streets on days having odd-numbered dates, and on the even-numbered side of streets on days having even-numbered dates. There is a grace period from 6:01 pm to Midnight during which time vehicles will be allowed to park on either side of the street. It may be easier to understand this regulation by asking…”Will the date become an ODD or EVEN day at midnight”? If ODD, then the ODD numbered side of the street must be clear of vehicles from 12:01 am to 6:00 pm. If EVEN, then the EVEN side of the street must be clear of vehicles from 12:01 am to 6:00 pm. For Example…on November 1st, vehicles should begin the day parked on the even side of the street then from 6:01 pm until midnight you can park on either side but from 12:01 am until 6:00 pm the following day (November 2nd), vehicles should move to the odd side of the street. So, if you are retiring for the evening on November 1st at 8:00 pm then be sure your car is parked on the ODD side of the street so that at 12:01 am, your vehicle is on the even side of the street for the next day.
