UPDATED, Feb. 19: Phase II of the snow emergency is over, as of Tuesday, and Baltimore's mayor has finally said it: no more using chairs to save parking spaces.
UPDATE, 11:21 a.m. Mon.: City school officials ask that residents move cars from school parking lots by 3 p.m. so they can plow any new snow that falls in preparation for classes resuming Tuesday morning.
Good news for some city residents still worried about where to put their cars during Phase II of Baltimore's snow emergency plan, which continues today. That means cars on designated snow emergency routes are still in danger of being towed during the hours posted on signs -- either 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. or 9 p.m. to 9 a.m.
The city has extended free parking at garages in Little Italy, Harbor East, Mount Vernon and at Penn Station until 9 a.m. Tuesday morning, according to www.396snow.com.
According to Councilman James Kraft, paved roads in Patterson Park as well as lots at the Du Burns Arena and the Canton Waterfront Park continue to be parking options for residents as well.
The same page also lists school parking lots that are available, but I will check with transportation officials to see how long those remain an option.
