During snow events, the City Manager may declare a “snow emergency” and there will be a 12-hour period of time when parking will not be allowed on Chandler Avenue (and other streets around Bend). This allows for complete plowing of the street from curb to curb. Once a street has been completely plowed from curb to curb, drivers are welcome to return to the street to park during the snow emergency.

To receive notifications when a snow emergency is declared, people can sign up for “snow emergency notifications” at www.bendoregon.gov/enews.
