2023 Parking Awareness Campaign
Town Launches Parking Awareness Campaign as Winter Parking Restrictions come into Effect
The Town of Stouffville is initiating a parking campaign to remind residents of crucial parking regulations effective year-round, including those specific to the winter season.
3-Hour Parking Limitation - The Town's Parking By-law permits parking on highways for up to 3 hours, with exceptions outlined in Schedule 3 of the Parking By-law. Stouffville residents seeking exemptions can obtain on-street parking permits, limited to 12 times per license plate annually, for durations exceeding 3 hours or for overnight guests. It's important to note that these permits are not valid during winter road maintenance to ensure the efficient clearing of roadways.
Sidewalk Encroachment - In line with section 8 of the Parking By-law, no portion of a vehicle can be parked to obstruct a sidewalk, footpath, or crosswalk, ensuring pedestrian and traffic flow safety.
Winter Parking - Between December 1st and March 31st each year, vehicles are prohibited from parking on any road from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m., and during winter maintenance activities. On-street parking permits ordered during winter road maintenance activities will be void.
The success of these parking restrictions relies on the cooperation of the entire community. Residents are encouraged to plan ahead, utilize off-street parking options, and communicate these regulations to neighbors and visitors.
Residents and visitors are urged to be mindful of and adhere to all parking regulations to facilitate snow clearing efforts and maintain safe road conditions. On-street parking is strictly prohibited during winter maintenance operations and between 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. from December 1st to March 31st.
