Winter overnight parking permitted in two municipal lots

The Town of Orangeville is offering an overflow winter parking program at two municipal parks.

To provide residents with an option that does not involve overnight on-street parking, the Town  offers space at Rotary Park and Fendley Park between December 1, 2018 and March 31, 2019.

The entire parking lot at Fendley Park will be available for overflow winter parking while part of the Rotary Park parking lot will be free for parking. Signs have been erected informing users about which area of the parking lot is to be used on which night, allowing the other part to be plowed and sanded.

The Town’s Traffic By-law prohibits overnight winter parking on municipal property. The by-law prohibits on-street parking and parking in municipal parking lots from 2-7 a.m. from December 1 to March 31 to permit winter control activities. Violations can result in having a vehicle ticketed or towed.

Residents are also reminded that it is an offence under Town of Orangeville by-laws to park over a sidewalk.
