The Town of Huntsville is reminding residents and visitors that there is no overnight on-street parking from November 1st to April 15th.
From November to April, on-street parking changes to accommodate snow plowing and snow removal. In addition to no overnight on-street parking, there are a few streets where daytime on-street parking is also restricted in the winter months. This includes parking at the end of dead-end streets, which makes it difficult for the plow truck or sander to turn around, causes delays in operations and is a safety concern.
Vehicles parked in these areas will be towed at the owner’s expense. In an effort to educate the public on the winter parking rules, for the first couple of weeks of November, or until the first significant winter event, the Town will issue warning cards to vehicles parked in prohibited areas and where it would be difficult for winter equipment to pass safely.
For those that need a place to park overnight during the winter months, parking in municipal parking lots overnight is allowed. These parking lots will be cleared during the overnight hours, so if you choose to park in a municipal lot, please move your vehicle periodically to avoid having it plowed in.
Winter conditions mean we all need to take a little bit more time when travelling and parking. Clear roads allow operators to effectively plow and apply sand and salt as required to ensure the greatest safety for drivers and operators. This winter, keep in mind the following when travelling:
Don’t park on the street overnight
Follow parking signage for day-time winter parking
Keep a safe distance back from plows and avoid passing
Don’t shovel, push or throw snow onto the road or across the road
The Town of Huntsville has created a new winter parking map that details where you can park from November 1st to April 15th. Visit Huntsville.ca/parking to see the map and huntsville.ca/snowremoval to learn more about winter operations.
