The City of Kingston has issued a release stating that the on-street parking ban has been implemented tonight due to the snowy weather forecast.

Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning earlier this morning, stating that up to 15 cm of snow is possible today into the overnight hours. As previously reported, the winter parking pilot project allows for on-street parking during the ‘shoulder months’ of winter – December and March. January and February continue to have a full on-street parking ban overnight. While currently in the ‘shoulder months,’ the on-street parking ban being implemented for the night of Friday, Mar. 22, 2024, and into Saturday is so that plows can be operated efficiently during the coming snowfall.

“While the ban is in place, parking on all City streets is prohibited between the hours of 1 a.m. and 7 a.m., and from 12 a.m. to 7 a.m. on the streets that surround Kingston General Hospital,” the release reads.

The City noted that vehicles parked on the street during the hours of the ban are subject to ticketing and towing.

Kingston residents are encouraged to check CityofKingston.ca/WinterParking and follow the City on social media for updates and more information.
