The District of Squamish is implementing new winter parking restrictions this year. From today, December 1, parking will be restricted to one side of the street until March 1 to ensure that snow plows and emergency vehicles can access the designated streets.
District crews have been delivering letters to residents and plans to install signs that will indicate parking restrictions between December 1 and March 1. District says it’s being done to ensure community safety through improved snow clearing and emergency vehicle access. The changes are being introduced in response to a review of safety-related issues that reached a breaking point last winter.
Once signage has been installed, restrictions will be in place and residents will need to work towards moving vehicles off the streets where indicated.
