Overnight On-Street Parking Ban Extended

Published on: 2022/12/12 - in News

The City of Kingston has announced an extension of its overnight on-street parking ban. This comes after some streets were rendered inaccessible to snowplows due to parked cars following yesterday’s weather event.

“We recognize that no snow is forecast for tonight,” said Karen Santucci, Director of Public Works. “However, keeping this ban in place will allow our crews to clear the streets that they couldn’t navigate last night. We ask everyone to please find off-street parking options overnight, so we can ensure all roads in the City are clear and safe for all community members and emergency vehicles.”

Residents are reminded that vehicles in violation of the ban may face fines or have their cars towed. The ban will be in effect between the hours of 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on all City streets and from 12 a.m. to 7 a.m. on the streets surrounding Kingston General Hospital. It will remain in place until the City deems it no longer necessary. When the ban is lifted, notice will be posted on the City’s website and social media.
