I have been working closely with the Public Works Department to find a location within Ward 10 to assist the community with additional parking options for those who need to find alternative parking arrangements during a Winter Parking Ban.
I am happy to share I have been successful in securing the Greenboro Park and Ride as a temporary location for parking when a Winter Parking Ban is in effect, for this year only, as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Public Works will be installing signage at the Greenboro Park and Ride to indicate where you can park for free during a Winter Parking Ban.
Between November 15 and April 1, the City may declare a Winter Weather Parking Ban for inclement weather including freezing rain or when Environment Canada forecasts 7 cm or more of snow in the Ottawa area. This includes any forecast for a range of snow more than 7 cm, such as 5 to 10 cm. The Winter Weather Parking Ban will be called to support clearing operations and will continue until the City issues notice that it has been lifted.
When a Winter Weather Parking Ban is called, the City issues a special advisory to the local media and posts it on ottawa.ca. The parking ban ends when snow clearing is completed, and the City issues an advisory indicating that it has been lifted.
Vehicles without a residential parking permit that are parked on the street during a parking ban may be ticketed and towed. For more information about the City’s response during the winter, click here.
