South Central Peninsula Parking Bans

The Commissioner of Municipal Operations and Engineering (the “Commissioner”), or his designate, may declare a snow ban for all or any of the streets set out in Schedule Q of the Saint John Traffic By-law, when it is necessary for the safe and efficient removal or movement of snow or ice, or snow and ice that has accumulated on such streets.

Once a snow ban has been declared, no person shall park a vehicle, other than an authorized emergency vehicle, on the streets that are set out in Schedule Q of the Saint John Traffic By-law between the hours of 11:00 p.m. of a day on which the Commissioner, or his designate, has declared a snow ban and 7:00 a.m. of the next day. Any vehicles remaining on-street when the parking ban is in effect will be ticketed and/or towed at the owner’s risk and expense.

A temporary parking ban allows plow crews to push snow back to the curb on all streets in the South/Central Peninsula to maintain access through all streets, especially narrow ones, by emergency and private vehicles throughout the winter. Getting the snow pushed back makes it possible to then allow alternate-side parking to be close to the curb, keeping the street open.

Public notification will be provided no later than 3:45 p.m. the day of the ban, and will be done through the following:

Off-Street Parking Options During Declared Snow Bans

Designated Saint John Parking Commission Lots

In order to minimize the inconvenience for residents who do not have access to off-street parking, the Saint John Parking Commission has agreed to allow overnight parking in a number of designated parking lots on occasions only when the snow ban has been declared.

  1. Corner of Princess and Charlotte
  2. King Street East
  3. Peters Street
  4. Carmarthen Street/Vineyard Church
  5. Mecklenburg Street at Wentworth
  6. Corner of Charlotte and Queen Street at Key Industries (entrance on Queen Street)

Residents are permitted to park in these lots beginning at 6:00 p.m., and must have their vehicles removed by 7:00 a.m. the following morning to allow for snow clearing operations and to allow access for our monthly parking customers. (On Saturdays and Sundays, vehicles must be removed by 12 noon.)

Any unauthorized vehicles remaining in these lots after 7:00 a.m. (Monday to Friday) or noon (Saturday and Sunday) are subject to being towed at the owner’s risk and expense.

No overnight parking in metered areas year round!

No person shall park a vehicle between the hours of 00:01 and 07:00 in any parking space in which either a parking meter or a pay and display machine is installed.
