HRM enforcing overnight parking ban Saturday morning

If you park on the street, you will have to find another spot for your vehicle tonight.

Roughly 5 cm of snow is on the way, so the city is enforcing the winter parking ban, to make it easier to clean the streets.

It goes into effect 1 a.m. to 6 a.m. Saturday for Zone 1 and Zone 2 in the peninsula, downtown Dartmouth and surrounding areas.

Planters, lawn decorations and any other portable objects near the sidewalk should be removed before the winter. Any permanent structures or objects too big to move should be marked with a reflector that will be visible above the snow to help crews identify obstacles.

The city says vehicles obstructing a driveway or sidewalk are prone to damage and become dangerous for crews. Such obstacles prevent crews from clearing the sidewalks properly, which can quickly become an accessibility issue for pedestrians, seniors, people with mobility issues and parents pushing strollers.
