A major winter snow storm is expected to arrive in Saratoga Springs and the Capital Region early this afternoon, and the city is making preparations. Residents and visitors should take note that a snow emergency has been declared in Saratoga Springs starting at 9:00am on Tuesday, February 12.
Get Ready for the Snow Storm

During a snow emergency, vehicles must be moved to a cleared or plowed area every 12 hours. However, city streets that have alternate side parking are not impacted and vehicles should be moved as previously posted.
