Winter parking ban in effect for Cottage Grove, St. Paul Park and Newport


With winter right around the corner, two south Washington County communities need to be aware of the on-street parking ban that began Friday.

The Cottage Grove City Council recently amended its ordinance to scale back the winter parking ban. The new ordinance states the ban is effective Nov. 1 through March 31. All vehicles must remain off the street between the hours of 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.

In St. Paul Park, the ordinance time is the same but remains in effect until April 1.
