Temporary Overnight Snow Ban Declared for the South/Central Peninsula

16-Feb-2015

An overnight snow parking ban has been declared for the South/Central Peninsula effective 11 p.m. this evening through to 7 a.m. tomorrow morning. This means there is no on-street parking allowed anywhere in the South/Central Peninsula area. Any vehicles remaining on-street after 11 p.m. when a snow ban has been declared WILL BE TOWED at the owner's risk and expense. 

Six Parking Commission snow ban parking lots have been cleared for use by on-street parking residents beginning at 6 pm tonight at:

• the corner of Princess Street and Charlotte Street

• King Street East

• Peters Street

• Carmarthen Street/Vineyard Church 

• Mecklenburg Street at Wentworth Street

• the corner of Charlotte and Queen Street at Key Industries (entrance on Queen Street)

Vehicles must be removed from all snow ban parking lots by 7 a.m. Monday through Friday and by noon on weekends. Vehicles remaining in the lots after these times may be towed at the owner's risk and expense.

The PEEL Plaza Parking Garage offers a $5.00 overnight parking rate for nights when a snow ban is declared. This rate is valid only between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. the following morning. Regular parking rates will be charged before and after these hours.

The purpose of a Snow Ban is to allow plow crews to push snow back from all streets in the South/Central Peninsula to maintain access to all streets – especially narrow ones – by emergency and private vehicles throughout the winter.

The City of Saint John apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your cooperation as we work to clear our City streets.
