Announcing Owatonna Even/Odd Parking

In the town where I live, the middle of November begins what we call “even/odd parking season.” This is a time of year where, if you are parking on the street, you need to be aware of today’s date, tomorrow’s date, the house numbers on the street in which you are parking, and the city plowing rules as related to those numbers. Some folks find it pretty straightforward to do these mental gymnastics, but I just wanted a web page to tell me what to do.

Enter Owatonna Even/Odd Parking. This page simplifies the winter parking rules of my city into a simple statement: Park on the even/odd side of the street. You can load it up at the website or install it as an app by adding it to your home screen. Hope this helps a few of you out there who live near me!
