Residential Street Parking Ban – KNOW YOUR ZONE!
Plowing of residential streets will begin Wednesday morning to improve the overall condition of residential streets. As a result, a Residential Parking Ban has been declared and will be in effect starting Wednesday, February 10 at 7:00 a.m.
Motorists are urged to park elsewhere when a residential street is scheduled for snow clearing.
Citizens are urged to confirm their snow zone letter in order to determine when their residential street is scheduled for clearing. You can find your snow zone with our Address Lookup Tool at knowyourzone.winnipeg.ca or by contacting 311 (available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by phone at 311, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org).

Avoid a ticket and tow: For the residential streets that are scheduled, residents are urged to find an alternate place to park such as an off-street driveway or parking lot, or a nearby street that is not currently scheduled for plowing. This will help the plowing operation run smoothly and will prevent you from being ticketed and towed.
Vehicles parked in violation of the Residential Parking Ban may receive a $150 ticket ($75 if paid early), and may be towed to a nearby street that is not scheduled to be plowed, or has already been cleared. Tickets will only be issued from 11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. but you are encouraged to move your car regardless if you will receive a ticket or not. If you believe your vehicle may have been towed due to the Residential Parking Ban, please contact 311 for assistance in locating it.
Stay back, stay safe: Approximately 400 – 450 pieces of heavy equipment will be used for this snow clearing operation so motorists are reminded to drive to road conditions and to use extreme caution when driving near any snow clearing equipment or sanding trucks.
