CLARENVILLE, N.L.

The annual parking ban is in effect for Clarenville streets in preparation for the winter months.

The announcement was made at the Clarenville council meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 20.

The parking ban is, as it has been over the past decade, to ensure cars are not in the street if there is a snowfall. The ban is to make sure the town’s snowplows don’t have to maneuver around vehicles while plowing the streets in the winter season.

Clarenville’s chief administrative officer David Harris says, particularly with smaller streets, having cars parked on the roads can present problems during this time of the year, so they ask residents to park in designated areas like driveways and parking spaces.

He says it’s an issued faced by many towns during the winter.

Cars in violation of the parking ban are subject to ticketing by the municipal enforcement officer.
