Public Reminded to Abide by Snow Removal Bylaw
Posted on 01/15/2020
Moving into the heart of winter, the City of Charlottetown is reminding the public of key regulations in the Snow Removal Bylaw.

Under the Snow Removal Bylaw, private contractors and members of the public are prohibited from dumping snow onto any City street or property, which includes utility property and fire hydrants. A fine of up to $500 is associated with this infraction.

As the snow alert is activated more frequently over the next few months, residents are reminded that off-street parking is available at locations throughout the downtown. City parkades offer free parking on Saturdays and holidays, CADC also offers a Park and Ride service from its Grafton Street lot to the downtown. Details are available on the CADC website at http://cadcpei.com/parking-facilities/ The City also offers a free off-street parking alternative during the overnight winter parking restrictions in the Holland College staff parking lot, located on Fitzroy Street next to ADL Ltd. The public can park overnight at this location between the hours of 8 p.m. and 7:30 a.m.

Sign up for the Charlottetown Alert System to receive the Snow Alert directly. The alert system is free, but subscription based and individuals must choose how they receive messages, such as by phone, text or email (Please note that standard message rates may be applied by carriers for SMS/text messages depending on individual mobile phone plans).
