It’s that time of year!  Snow season is upon us.  This email will serve as a reminder of our snow policy.

It is the parking tenant’s responsibility to shovel out the individual purchased parking space; regardless if it is plowed in from Zukin Realty Inc. snow removal or from the Borough’s street snow plow.

Zukin Realty will plow parking lots to the best of our ability, but cannot guarantee that all spots will be cleared of snow. We will provide access to and from the lot.   Individual spots that are not in a parking lot are the tenant’s responsibility to shovel.  Parking lots are located in the following areas:

 39 East Gay Street

122 East Gay Street /115 Middle Alley

125/127 East Gay Street

152/150 East Gay Street

200 East Gay Street

231 Sharpless Street

308 South Church Street

344/348 West Gay Street

345 West Chestnut Street

347 West Market Street

 Additionally, the borough declares a snow emergency when a snow accumulation of 6 inches or more is expected or when extremely hazardous conditions exist such as an ice storm.  During these times much of the on street parking in the borough is not permitted.  We also ask that you DO NOT PARK in your Zukin parking spot in the above listed lots so that we may plow and clear the areas as needed.  If you are parked in the space during a snow emergency, you may be towed.

 If an emergency is called, you may park at no charge in municipal parking areas.  It is the tenant’s responsibility to understand when a snow emergency is called and where you are able to park during that time period.  Additional information around the borough snow emergency policy and parking can be found on the borough web site at:

If you rent a “snow spot” you are required to move and find other parking accommodations. The snow spot is rented to you at a discounted rate so that we can successfully plow the lot and push the snow into your spot.
