Winter Reminders and Snow Plow Information

Snow Hydrant - 300

Parking Regulations in Effect from November 1 – April 1

  • No parking on any street from 2 - 7AM. A permit for overnight parking may be obtained from the Blaine Police Department in emergency situations.
  • No parking on any street after a snowfall of two inches or more until the street has been fully plowed from curb to curb.

Please Keep Fire Hydrants Clear, Shovel After Each Snowfall

Residents and business owners are asked to please remember to shovel out around fire hydrants after each snowfall. It is very important to keep hydrants clear of snow and visible from the street.

If the fire department has to spend time trying to find and dig out a fire hydrant under the snow, they lose precious time needed to fight fires. A fire can double in size every 30 seconds. If it takes firefighters even two extra minutes to locate and dig out a hydrant, the damage to a home could be massive. Please talk with your neighbors to determine who will keep the hydrant clear. Remember, the house you help save may be your own.

Blaine Snow Plow Information Portal

The City of Blaine has prepared a snow plowing information portal. With over 600 lane miles of streets, 95 miles of sidewalks, and 60 miles of trails plowed by Blaine Public Works, this portal contains helpful information related to plow sequencing for city streets, parking lots, sidewalks, and trails. It also includes resident snow removal responsibilities and answers frequently asked questions.
