It looks like we’re expecting some snowfall tomorrow, so I wanted to provide you some useful information that can generally be applied for Quincy during snow emergencies, and some useful contact information in case of emergency.

Snow emergency parking rules will be in place beginning at 7 a.m. on Thursday, February 9.
Residents may park on the EVEN numbered side of non-emergency neighborhood streets, but should always park in driveways if available.

Parking is prohibited on all designated emergency arteries. Click here for a complete list of emergency arteries.

Residents on side-streets posted permanently as one-side parking should park on the side always allowed.
Cars parked in violation of emergency rules or impede snow plowing operations pose a public safety risk, and WILL BE TOWED.

For assistance, residents can use the City’s snow request application at or call the DPW’s snow operation hotline at 617-376-1927.

The forecast calls for high winds, which creates the potential for downed tree limbs and power lines. If you lose power, call National Grid at 1-800-465-1212 or visit their Outage Central page at

Trash and recycling collection will begin early on February 9. Residents are asked to have material curbside no later than 6 a.m. on Thursday.

For updates and emergency notices, please tune to Quincy Access Television; follow the City of Quincy’s Facebook page or via Twitter @CityofQuincy.

As always, please feel free to reach me at or at 617-376-1303. Be safe!
