Winter Street and Sidewalk Maintenance FAQ

There are some simple steps that residents and businesses can take to help protect their property and ensure snow clearing efforts go as safely and smoothly as possible.

• Trim any tree branches and shrubs that originate from your property. These can obstruct access and visibility for snow clearing equipment.

• Remove planters, signs, lawn decorations and any other portable objects near the sidewalk before the winter.

• Mark any permanent structures, railings, steps or objects too big to move with a reflector that will be visible above the snow. This helps plow operators identify obstacles.

• Secure off-street parking. Vehicles that overhang or are parked on streets or sidewalks could be inadvertently damaged during plowing operations because they pose dangerous obstacles for plow operators. This impedes our ability to plow the streets for all motorists. Vehicles that are parked on the street during a storm are in violation of the Motor Vehicle Act and can be ticketed or towed.

For more information, see the full pdf Winter Street and Sidewalk Maintenance Frequently Asked Questions (118 KB) document or visit the Parking in Lunenburg page on this website.

Thank you for your cooperation! Stay safe this winter.

Winter Parking Advisory 2020-21

Please help us keep Town streets free of ice and snow by ensuring your vehicle is parked off-street during winter storm and snow removal operations. The Public Works Department can do the job more efficiently if your vehicles are not left on the street during this time. Please arrange off-street parking locations during snow clearing and salting operations. The Town of Lunenburg operates several parking lots where overnight (5:00 p.m. - 8:00 a.m.) parking is permitted for a fee ($25/month + HST).  Parking passes may be purchased at the Lunenburg Town Hall, 119 Cumberland Street (902-634-4410).
