NEW: Town Council Passes Motion as Interim Measure to Address Boulevard Parking
A surge of resident queries on the issue prompted Halton Hills Town Council to pass an interim motion at a Special Meeting of Council on January 15.
The motion passed by Town Council reads as follows:
THAT enforcement staff be directed to allow boulevard parking where the vehicle is;
• Parked and fully encompassed on the paved portion of the boulevard with all tires fully on the hard surface
• Fully parked on the hard surface between the sidewalk and curb/road edge
• Facing the direction of traffic if parked parallel to the road
• Parked within the boundaries of the home’s projected property line.
AND FURTHER THAT enforcement staff continue to enforce boulevard parking infractions where;
• Vehicles are parked on the landscaped portion of the boulevard or access the paved portion of the boulevard by driving over the landscaped portions of the boulevard
• Any portion of the vehicle is hanging over the sidewalk or curb/road edge
• Vehicles interfere with snow plowing efforts
• Vehicles are parked less than 30 metres from an intersection.
AND FURTHER THAT boulevard parking be allowed for single family, semi-attached homes and townhomes where driveways are facing a Town street;
AND FURTHER THAT this motion be in effect until such time as staff bring forward a report to Council with an informed recommendation, and any proposed amendments to the Uniform Traffic Control By-law, based on safety and well-being of residents.
To obtain a parking permit, please contact the Public Works Division at 905-873-2601 ext. 2603.
The Town does give consideration to allow residents to park on the street for a limit of six (6) occasions (per vehicle) per year, maximum four (4) days in length. Considerations are granted for overnight guests, driveway repairs or special functions. A parking consideration only exempts the registered vehicle from the five hour parking by-law and the ban on parking between 2AM and 6AM. All other parking by-laws will remain in effect.
Any parking exemption granted by the Town will be revoked, without notice, and becomes null and void where the parking activity interferes with snow removal or road maintenance. To prevent ticketing, applicants are required to monitor weather conditions and act in accordance with the Town’s by-laws.
Under no circumstance are considerations granted for commercial vehicles, trailers or recreational vehicles.
Overnight parking or five hour street parking is for Personal Vehicles only.
Uniform Traffic Control By-law No. 84-1 prohibits on-street parking Daily from 2:00 a.m. - 6:00 a.m. November 15 to April 15.
For inquiries, please contact 905-873-2601 extension 2330.

Motorists are reminded that By-law No. 84-1 also prohibits the parking of a vehicle on all Town roads for longer than five(5) consecutive hours at any single location, unless otherwise specifically posted.

Winter On-Street Parking Prohibition
(Effective November 15 to April 15)
On-street parking is prohibited between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m.
Effective on all Town streets, unless posted as a ‘12 Hour’ limit zone.
Regulation is proactively enforced during the winter months.
This regulation helps to facilitate winter road maintenance activities.
The placing or pushing of snow or ice onto roadways or cleared sidewalks will obstruct or encumber vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Do Not push snow across roadways because the trail of snow does turn to ice. The Town's Obstruction, Encumbering or Fouling of Highways By-law No. 90-68 prohibits such action.
AUTHORITIES MAY HAVE SNOW AND ICE REMOVED AT THE PROPERTY OWNER'S EXPENSE
Improper snow and ice clearing can be a serious hazard to motorists and pedestrians. Your co-operation is requested. Please comply with the requirements of this By-law.
The winter season will soon be upon us. Be alert for snow plows and stay back at least 15 meters behind the trucks. Please avoid parking on streets during snowstorms to assist Public Works staff with winter control.
