In 2019, the Town of Carleton Place adopted overnight parking restrictions from November 15th to April 1st with the primary reason being the ability for Public Works to properly maintain the safety of our roadways throughout the winter season. This system also allows the Town of Carleton Place to optimize operational efficiencies and maximize our limited staff resources, from both the Public Works and Bylaw Departments. Most Eastern Ontario communities (urban and rural) are using the same seasonal overnight parking ban concept including Arnprior, Mississippi Mills, Smiths Falls, and Perth.
Starting November 15th, 2020 through to April 1st, 2021, overnight on-street parking will be strictly prohibited between the hours of 12:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m., regardless of weather conditions, to allow for thorough and efficient winter maintenance operations. The Town has a legal responsibility to provide safe roadways for our community and to maintain our streets and sidewalks in accordance with Provincial Minimum Maintenance Standards.
Vehicles parked in violation of the ban will ticketed and towed to the Public Library parking lot at 101 Beckwith Street.
We appreciate your support and if you have any questions, please contact the Public Works Department at 613-257-2253.
