Winter Parking Advisory - Your Cooperation is Appreciated!

Parking advisory

Please help us keep Town streets free of ice and snow by ensuring your vehicle is parked off-street during winter storms and snow removal operations by the Public Works Department. We can do the job faster and better if your vehicles are not left on the street during this time. With your help we can make pedestrian and vehicle safety a priority by finding alternate parking locations during snow clearing and salting operations.

 

In the Town of Lunenburg, the RCMP enforce the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act which: 1.) prohibits parking or leaving a motor vehicle, whether attended or unattended, on any street that might interfere with or obstruct snow removal, or winter maintenance; 2.) authorizes a Police Officer to have a motor vehicle moved or towed to some other place if it is interfering with or obstructing snow removal or winter maintenance; and 3.) provides that the cost of moving or towing the motor vehicle may be recovered from the owner.

The Town of Lunenburg operates several parking lots where overnight (5:00 p.m. – 8:00 a.m.) parking is permitted for a fee ($33.70/month HST included). Parking passes may be purchased at the Lunenburg Town Hall, 119 Cumberland Street (902-634-4410).

The cooperation of all drivers is appreciated. For more information, please contact the Public Works Department at 902-634-8992, or online at http://www.explorelunenburg.ca/parking-in-lunenburg.html.
