Snow forecast means snow-removal efforts still in place, limiting overnight parking

With winter settling in, motorists in Barrie need to be aware of parking restrictions in force because of snow removal.
The City says that with the weather forecast showing Barrie will receive another 10 cm of snow overnight, the Winter Maintenance Event is being continued. This means that on-street parking is prohibited overnight, Nov. 16, 3–6 a.m. within the Downtown Business Improvement Area, and on other city streets 12:01–7 a.m.
As per the Overnight Parking By-law, 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.
