The Town of
Chestertonís snow parking ban will go into effect in the Downtown at 12:01
a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 28, after the Town Council voted unanimously at its
meeting Monday to activate it.
Under the ban,
motorists are prohibited from parking on the following roadways between 12
and 8 a.m. during or after snowfalls of two inches or more:
* South Calumet
Road from Porter Ave. to the Norfolk Southern railroad grade-crossing.
* Broadway from
South Calumet Road to Sixth Street.

The parking ban is
intended to make snow-plowing easier and more effective. Street Commissioner
