Overnight and Alternate Parking Change

Spring and summer parking regulations will be taking effect for Alternate and Overnight Parking with the following changes.
Overnight Parking: Overnight Parking regulations on the main streets such as Central Ave., Lakeshore Dr., Brigham Rd., Doughty St., Main St. and many of the smaller side streets will end Sunday April 3rd and does not resume again until Sunday November 6th .

Alternate Parking: Parking will change back to weekly as follows:

Effective at 5:00PM starting Sunday April 3rd and continuing to Sunday November 6th for one week periods commencing at 5:00PM on any odd numbered Sunday, parking shall be allowed on the odd numbered side of the streets affected and on any even numbered Sunday, parking shall be allowed on the even numbered side of the streets affected. The date of the day after 5:00PM on Sunday determines the side on which parking is allowed for the following week. Courtesy tags will be issued as reminders for a short period of time, after that time parking summonses will be issued.

It is not the goal of the City of Dunkirk or the Police Department to issue parking summonses for violations. We are asking everyone’s cooperation to park properly and help those who may be visitors to our area with understanding our parking regulations. Proper parking is a matter of public safety in that we have to keep streets open and accessible to emergency vehicles at all times. We want everyone to be aware that if the need arises we will tow vehicles that hamper access by emergency vehicles or create a hazard to public safety. Proper parking also allows Public Works access for street upkeep.

We truly appreciated the help of our residents this past winter with getting their vehicles moved in a timely manner during winter storms. Your cooperation kept the streets clear for plows and emergency vehicles. Thank you !!

Again we ask everyone to help keep the City of Dunkirk a safe place for residents, business people and visitors to enjoy. Please call the Police Communications Desk at 366-2266 with any questions regarding Parking Regulations.
