  • With the exception of a recreational vehicle no person shall park a vehicle with a trailer exceeding six meters in length or a truck tractor unit with or without a semi-trailer or trailer attached on a highway in front of, across from or adjacent to residential property.
  • No person shall park an unattached trailer on a highway in front of, across from or adjacent to residential property.
  • You may park a vehicle while unloading or loading goods to or from premises, a utility or other trailer temporarily used for construction, demolition or landscaping providing it does not obstruct other users of the highway.
  • During snow removal and street cleaning the City can temporarily suspend on street parking. Signage will be placed prior to parking suspension.
