Winter Parking
 
Overnight Parking Ban
 
In 2011, Carleton Place Town Council enacted significant changes to the Town's policy on winter parking. The parking restrictions that will be in effect with the coming winter season are conceptually similar to the system used by the City of Ottawa. In short this means:
 
1. Any time Environment Canada forecasts a snowfall of 7 cm or more an overnight parking ban will be in effect. This includes any forecast that calls for a range of snowfall exceeding 7 cm (i.e. 5 to 10 cm).
 
2. When this ban is in effect parking is prohibited on all town streets between 11 pm and 7 am to allow for snow clearing operations. Vehicles parked in violation of the ban will be ticketed and towed to the Public Library Parking Lot at 101 Beckwith St.
 
3. Town staff has been directed to determine the most efficient means to notify the public when a parking ban has been issued for the Town of Carleton Place. This will include notification being posted on the home page of the municipal website (http://www.carletonplace.ca/). Notification will also be posted on Twitter (www.twitter.com/Carleton_Place) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/carletonplacetownhall). Citizens are urged to check this website if in doubt.
 
Planned Snow Removal Operations
At times Carleton Place Public Works Department will actively remove snow banks when the weather is favourable to do so. Removal operations generally occur during the overnight periods but can take place during the daytime as well. Temporary no parking signs will be posted to inform residents removal operations will be taking place and they are not to park on the streets marked with signs.Vehicles parking within designated removal area will be ticketed and towed to a nearby street.
 
Fines
Should your vehicle be towed and ticketed, the fines are as follows:
 
  Pre-Payment Within 7 Days Set Fined Within 15 Days
Parking during an overnight parking ban $65.00 $80.00
Parking while snow removal in progress $45.00 $55.00
 
Council is confident that these improvements to our winter parking restrictions will allow our citizens more flexibility in parking their vehicles while at the same time ensuring that our streets can be cleared of snow in a timely and efficient manner. Any resident with questions about winter parking restrictions should feel free to contact Les Reynolds, Director of Protective Services at 613-257-5526 or lreynolds@carletonplace.ca for more information.
 

Parking Passes

Citizens can purchase parking passes from the Town of Carleton Place which grants them access to daytime use of municipal lots within Town above and beyond the posted time limit. Please Note: passes are for daytime use only and vehicles should be moved in the evening/overnight. A 6-month parking pass is $30 while an annual parking pass is $50.
