A snow emergency has not been declared for New Canaan, though
Director of the Office of Emergency Management Michael Handler said
that's pretty typical for the small town.
Handler simply asked for some common-sense participation from the community as the weather degrades into a snow storm Tuesday evening.
like to ask that residents please stay off the roads if they can," he
said. "Stay off the streets and allow the crews to get to work clearing
out the snow. To whatever extent residents can avoid on-street parking
to let them clear snow out of the way is extremely helpful."
"New Canaan is really unique [in its infrastructure design,]" Handler said
"I can't speak for the businesses and I imagine most will stay open for
as long as they can, but for residents, any avoidance of on-street
parking during snowfall would be helpful."
