- Once a Snowban is declared
the following Parking Lots are Available During Snowstorms
- City residents may park in the High-Hanover Parking Facility for $3 during snow emergencies and snow removals utilizing a City-issued coupon. Coupons are free and are issued at the Parking Clerk's Office in City Hall upon presenting proof of Portsmouth residency. Vehicles may be parked at the facility up two hours before the official start of the parking ban but must be moved within two hours after its official conclusion. Upon exiting the garage, residents present the snow ban coupon and identification to the parking attendant to receive the $3 rate. The coupons are non-transferable and may only be used by the person to whom they were issued.
