Overnight parking restrictions take effect Dec 1: City of Barrie

News release – City of Barrie

The City of Barrie reminds residents that from December 1 through to March 31, on-street parking is not permitted on City streets from 12:01 to 7 a.m., and 3 to 6 a.m. within the Downtown Business Improvement Area.

This ensures that the streets can be completely cleared and that emergency vehicles can get down the street. Overnight parking is also not permitted during this time period, December 1 to March 31, in any hybrid parking lots or waterfront parking areas (lots and on-street) from 12:01 to 5 a.m. Downtown off-street parking options (including parking lots and the Collier Street Parkade) are not included in these restrictions.

For more information about overnight parking restrictions, visit barrie.ca/OvernightParkingBylaw.

Plowing of City roads

The City has developed carefully planned levels of winter road service to combat the diverse weather conditions we see every winter. Priority and secondary roads are serviced when at least five cm of snow has fallen, with cleanup completed approximately six to eight hours after the end of snowfall. Residential roads are plowed when there is at least eight cm of snow with cleanup being completed 12 to 24 hours after snowfall ends. Residents are invited to use the City’s Plow Tracker to see when their street was last serviced.

Sidewalk plowing

Sidewalk plowing is done on main sidewalks when five cm of snow falls and on secondary sidewalks when there is eight cm of snow.

For more information and updates about winter maintenance or to access the Plow Tracker, visit barrie.ca/snow.
