Have your say on the winter weather-based parking pilot

The City is seeking feedback from Kingstonians regarding the winter weather-based parking pilot. 

Residents can visit the Get Involved Kingston project page to complete a short survey on the pilot. City staff will gather feedback and report back to Council with data and recommendations for the future of winter weather-based parking regulations in Kingston. 

The pilot program was first introduced in March 2022 and was extended in November 2023 to expand the amount of data collected through two full winters. The pilot bylaw created a weather-based approach to parking on Kingston’s streets during the winter:  

  • During the months of December and March, overnight on-street parking is permitted, so long as a parking ban is not called in advance of winter weather.
  • During the months of January and February, a blanket ban is in effect and overnight on-street parking is not permitted. 

The City of Kingston uses overnight on-street parking restrictions to respond quickly to winter weather. Plows are large vehicles, and it is safer, easier and more efficient to clear streets without vehicles parked on them.
