It’s almost November, which means the snow and slush is on its way and winter weather woes are about to ensue on Edmonton roads.
This year, the city is trying out a residential parking ban in the communities of Gold Bar and Silver Berry to study possible enhancements for snow-clearing services.
According to the city, when residential blading is confirmed, the side of the road with house numbers ending in an odd number will be placed under a parking ban and bladed on Mondays, while the side of the road with house numbers ending in an even number will be under a parking ban and bladed on Tuesdays.
If citizens’ vehicles are not moved from the street on their respective day, a $100 ticket can be issued.
According to the city, accessible parking stalls and windrow free zones will be cleared regardless of which side of the street they are on, and cul-de-sacs will be excluded from the parking ban due to equipment limitations for blading in such areas.
This parking ban trial is different from the seasonal parking ban on bus roads.
