City declares Winter Maintenance Event due to snowfall, no overnight parking

The City of Barrie is declaring a Winter Maintenance Event to allow crews to effectively clear the streets tonight.
This means that on-street parking is prohibited overnight: Nov. 15, 3–6 a.m. within the Downtown Business Improvement Area, and on other City streets 12:01–7 a.m. The parking restriction is required due to the 10–20 cm of snow that fell on Barrie last night.
As per the overnight parking bylaw, on-street parking is not permitted 3–6 a.m. within the Downtown Business Improvement Area, and on other City streets 12:01–7 a.m., Dec. 1 through March 31. This ensures the City can completely clear streets of snow and that large emergency vehicles can get down the street. Outside of the Dec. 1 through March 31 time period, Winter Maintenance Events can be declared when streets require snow plowing, sanding, salting, direct liquid application, snow removal or other winter maintenance operations.
