There are still several areas of the city without power. Con Ed’s response has been sorely lacking countywide. We are in constant contact with them and are facilitating the crews that do come, but they have a serious lack of resources throughout the county which has resulted in these unacceptable delays in restoring power.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm warning for our area for Wednesday, March 7th. Significant snowfall and hazardous travel conditions are expected.
The City’s Department of Public Works crews will be working through the storm to clear roads as quickly and completely as possible. In order to enable them to do their job it is important that vehicles not be left parked on the street.
As a courtesy, the City of White Plains is offering free parking to White Plains residents for vehicles registered to addresses within the City of White Plains in the Lexington-Grove East & West parking garages (also known as the Galleria), Hamilton-Main Garage, and Chester-Maple Garage starting at 9:00 AM Wednesday, March 7th through 9:00 AM Thursday, March 8th. All other garages, lots and on street parking will remain subject to normal enforcement. There will be strict enforcement of the City’s ban on overnight on-street parking as vehicles left on the street impair our ability to clear snow and can create hazardous conditions.
The City of White Plains is providing free firewood to White Plains residents who have fireplaces. The firewood may be picked up at the Gedney Recycling Yard on Gedney Way.
The City’s Warming Center, located at the White Plains Education & Training Center, 303 Quarropas Street, will continue to be open this evening starting at 6:00 pm for residents in need.
Thank you for your cooperation and stay safe.
