Ban ensures safe and effective snow removal during winter season

The Town of St. Marys is reminding residents of its overnight winter parking ban, which took effect on November 1, 2022, and will remain in place until April 30, 2022. The ban prohibits on-street parking on any municipal roads and boulevards between the hours of 2:00 and 6:00 a.m.

The parking ban ensures staff can safely, effectively, and efficiently clear snow from local roads, making St. Marys safer and more accessible. Vehicles are also prohibited from parking on sidewalks while the ban is in place. This allows staff to clear the sidewalks for pedestrians and those with mobility devices.

Downtown residents who do not have access to overnight parking during the winter months can apply for a parking permit. Permit holders are assigned a dedicated parking spot in the Water St. N, Elgin St. E, or Opera House lots. Visit townofstmarys.com/parking for more information and to apply for or renew a parking permit.

Now that the ban is in place, Town staff will be notifying the Stratford Police Service of non-compliant vehicles. Motorists that continue to park on streets, sidewalks or boulevards will be asked to move, or could face a ticket from the police. Residents can also call the police’s non-emergency line at 519-271-4141 to report non-compliant vehicles.
