Cleveland's downtown architecture is diverse. Many of the city's government and civic buildings, including City Hall, the Cuyahoga County Courthouse, the Cleveland Public Library, and Public Auditorium, are clustered around an open mall and share a common neoclassical architecture.
Cleveland's road system consists of numbered streets running roughly north-south, and named avenues, which run roughly east-west. The numbered streets are designated "east" or "west", depending where they lie in relation to Ontario Street, which bisects Public Square. The numbered street system extends beyond the city limits into some suburbs on both the west and east sides.
Parking in Cleveland
In Cleveland, The Division of Parking Facilities regulates the Parking System.
This Division operates an on-street parking program which enforces the City's parking codes by issuing tickets and impounding vehicles. It is also responsible for maintaining parking meters.
Snow bans are issued by the City when there are large snowstorms. A “General” ban means no parking on main streets. An “All-City” ban means no parking on any city streets. The bans reduce the time it takes to restore normal traffic, as well as the amount of extra shoveling required for residents.
