Residential Street Plow – November 2022

Plowing of residential streets will begin Thursday morning to improve overall roadway conditions. As a result, a Residential Parking Ban has been declared and will be in effect Thursday, November 24, 2022 at 7 a.m. until Saturday, November 26, 2022 at 7 p.m.

Residents are advised to check their 2022/23 snow zone letter as zones may change from year-to-year. This winter season, approximately 18,000 addresses will have a new snow zone letter. You can find your snow zone with the:

  • Saturday, November 26 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, November 26

Parking ban enforcement:

  • Residents are encouraged to make alternate parking arrangements if they park on the street, such as using an off-street driveway or parking lot.
  • Vehicles parked in violation of the Residential Parking Ban may receive a $200 ticket ($150 if paid early), and may be towed to a nearby street that is not scheduled to be plowed, or has already been cleared.

Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR) technology will be used to identify vehicles parked in violation of Residential Parking Bans to ensure greater city-wide parking enforcement coverage, improve motorist compliance with winter parking bans, and improve our overall snow clearing service. Those parked in violation will receive tickets in the mail, rather than on the windshield of their vehicle; however, enforcement officers will continue to hand-deliver penalty notices to vehicles when necessary.

If a resident believes their vehicle may have been towed due to the Residential Parking Ban, they are asked to contact 311 for assistance in locating it.


Reporting a missed street:

If a residential street was not cleared as scheduled, residents are asked to wait until the Residential Parking Ban is lifted as crews may return to any given street within the operation’s duration. If the street remains uncleared after November 26, residents should then report it to 311. Residents can also report the location following the ban’s conclusion using the quick and convenient online form.


Additional information:

Approximately 300 pieces of heavy equipment will be used for this snow clearing operation. Motorists are reminded to drive to conditions and to use extreme caution when driving near heavy equipment.

Annual Winter Route Parking Ban

The Annual Winter Route Parking Ban has been declared and will start Saturday, November 26, 2022 at 2 a.m. Once in effect, the ban prohibits parking on designated routes between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m.

Prior to parking overnight at any on-street location, look for Winter Route or Snow Route signs or search the address online to ensure you avoid a ticket and tow.

It’s important to note this parking ban does not fluctuate depending on current conditions. Overnight parking restrictions apply to designated routes whether it is snowing or not, and even if the street appears to have been cleared. This is because snow and ice control activities are ongoing throughout the winter months and crews can do a more efficient job if major routes are clear of vehicles overnight.

The ban will remain in effect until further notice. Its removal is dictated by weather conditions and will be done by declaration at the City’s discretion later in the season.
