Residential snow removal begins Monday, February 11

Residents are asked to watch for large orange signs throughout each neighbourhood that state “Residential Street Snow Removal in Progress”. The signs include dates when street parking is not allowed, and will be posted a minimum of 24 hours prior to scheduled snow clearing in each area.

Parking will be permitted after the snow has been windrowed and removed.

Reminders for residents:

  • During the posted timeframe in each neighbourhood, parking is permitted on snow route collector roads, which have already been windrowed and cleared. These roads are marked with permanent “snow route when declared” signs.
     
  • Vehicles parked on a residential road during the posted timeframe will be towed, and the owner issued a $250 ticket.
     
  • Rubber mats, grates and any other materials at the edge of driveways must be removed, as they can interfere with snow removal equipment.
     
  • Parents are asked to remind children to stay off the windrowed (piled) snow for their safety.
     
  • If snow clearing is scheduled on a waste-collection day in your area, roll-out carts are to be placed at the end of the driveway, not on the road or sidewalk.

Crews will be working 24/7, and residential snow removal is expected to be complete by Sunday, February 17. If there is snowfall during the process and crews must attend to roads with higher traffic volumes, residential snow clearing will be delayed.

The residential snow clearing order is posted on the County website. Residents will be able to monitor progress through online progress maps.
