THUNDER BAY, ON ---- November 28, 2011 – Calendar Parking Regulations take effect beginning today. “Based on the snowfall this past weekend and the forecast of more snow later this week, we must now begin to enforce winter parking restrictions,” said James Coady, Manager Parking Authority.
Enforcement applies to Priority Routes, marked by signs in hospital, school zones, transit routes, downtown cores and emergency routes from 2 am until 7 am. Restrictions will also be in effect for streets subject to Calendar Parking restrictions from 9 am until 5 pm. The restrictions are necessary to allow for quick and effective winter road maintenance.
Under the By-law, the start and end dates of Calendar Parking are based on weather conditions in November and March. Unless waived by the Parking Authority in consultation with the General Manager of Infrastructure & Operations, parking restrictions will be enforced until March 31.
Motorists are asked to take special care to follow calendar parking signs and priority route restriction signs.
