An overnight snow parking ban has been declared for the South/Central Peninsula effective 11pm this evening through to 7am 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 pm 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 and
• Mecklenburg Street at Wentworth Street
• the corner of Charlotte and Queen Streets at Key Industries (entrance on Queen Street)
For tonight’s ban only, free parking will be also be available in the Peel Plaza Parking Garage. This offer 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.
Vehicles must be removed from all snow ban parking lots by 7 am 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.
Please note: The purpose of tonight’s snow ban (February 20, 2014) is for snow removal rather than push back. This is a longer process than push back.
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.
