The first phase of winter parking restrictions are in effect today – the same day Cornwall is expecting the first major winter event of the season.
As of Thursday, November 15, parking on roadways between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. is prohibited when a snowfall of 5 centimetres or more is forecasted by Environment Canada.
During the early restriction period, residents are encouraged to keep an eye on the weather forecast and local media reports. When a parking restriction is in effect, it will be posted on the City website and social media pages.
Parking restrictions are in effect for Thursday, November 15, as snow accumulation could reach the 15 centimetre mark.
“All snow equipment is ready,” said Tommy Sauve, Safety, Training and Operations Supervisor with the City of Cornwall. “We ask that everyone plan ahead and drive according to weather conditions.
“Always stay clear of snow plow equipment for everyone’s safety,” he added.
As of December 15, parking on any roadway between the hours of 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. will be prohibited – regardless of weather forecast.
