Street parking

Following an extreme snow fall, we call a plow out to remove snow from all streets. To help us clear City streets quickly and safely, please avoid parking on the street for at least 48 hours after a snowfall. This allows our plows to widen streets as much as possible and better accommodate driving, parking and cyclists during the winter.

Freezing rain

In the event of freezing rain warnings, we treat roads with both sand and salt.
