Crestwood Village ordinance prohibits parking on ANY village streets between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00a.m. The reason for this ordinance is so Police will be alerted to abandoned vehicles or suspicious vehicles that require investigations. This ordinance also ensures that all streets throughout the Village will be open to fire and rescue equipment in the event of an overnight emergency. This is especially necessary in areas where narrow streets can block large fire trucks. We will continue to enforce this ordinance. Please use our new online system www.frontlinepss.com/crestwood to request a specific request for exception. Limited requests per resident. Thank You for your cooperation with this ordinance.

Our Public Works Department is out in full force. All of our plow trucks are out. Our Public Works Department is doing their best to keep up and get the roads cleared for our residents. Our priority is to get the main streets cleared first to allow safe travels for our residents and businesses. We will then move to our side streets.The long duration of snow events coupled with the low temperatures pose unique challenges to snow and ice removal. Please be patient with us during this process.
If you have to shovel, please be careful and take your time. The snow is very heavy, wet snow, it’s known as heart attack snow. If you don’t have to go out we urge you to stay in and keep warm.
Below are some tips to prepare for winter weather and severe cold:
• Stay indoors during the storm.
• Walk carefully on snowy, icy walkways.
• Avoid overexertion when shoveling snow. Overexertion can bring on a heart attack – a major cause of death in the winter. If you must shovel snow, stretch before going outside.
• Keep dry. Change wet clothing frequently to prevent a loss of body heat. Wet clothing loses all of its insulating value and transmits heat rapidly.
• Watch for signs of frostbite. These include loss of feeling and white or pale appearance in extremities such as fingers, toes, ear lobes and the tip of the nose. If symptoms are detected, get medical help immediately.
• Watch for signs of hypothermia. These include uncontrollable shivering, memory loss, disorientation, incoherence, slurred speech, drowsiness and apparent exhaustion. If symptoms of hypothermia are detected, get the victim to a warm location, remove wet clothing, warm the center of the body first and give warm, non-alcoholic beverages if the victim is conscious. Get medical help as soon as possible.
