Winter Parking Restrictions go into effect today. Do not park on city streets overnight in Steamboat. Remove things from in front of your house like cars, campers trailers, and basketball hoops. Residents are also reminded to not plow snow from their driveway onto, or across the road. This creates a hazard for snow plow operators.
Parking restrictions in Hayden are from midnight to 7 a.m. on city streets, alleys, or highways.
No parking on Main Street in Oak Creek overnight. Residents on side streets have to move their cars within 24 hours of a snowfall.
In Craig, there is no parking on the street in the Shadow Mountain subdivision today through April 1. Also keep roadways clear of all vehicles and trailers. This will be enforced 24 hours a day by the Moffat County Sheriff’s Office.
All of the parking restrictions are so snowplow drivers can do their job, and you could get a ticket if you leave your car on the street.

The Steamboat Team to Disrupt Anti-Semitism and Discrimination, or STAND, group meets today, Wednesday, Nov. 1. Speakers include Steamboat Springs locals whose families have experienced the horror of the Holocaust, also a representative of the Anti-Defamation League, and Matt Kireker with Senator Michael Bennet’s office. That meeting is at 5 p.m. at the Steamboat Springs Community Center.
Keeping with its mission to combat bias and discrimination, this community convening will focus on understanding the impact of the Holocaust, the effect that acts of antisemitism have on the community, and how we can combat this form of discrimination and hate.
Antisemitic hate crimes rose by 35% from 2021 to 2022 in the United States, and even Steamboat has seen swastikas scrawled onto public places and burned into a picnic bench in the past year.
