The Winter Parking Program Is In Effect, as of November 15, 2013.
Markham's Winter Parking Safety Program requires all residents to park only on the odd numbered side of residential streets unless existing posted parking restrictions state otherwise.
The City's parking regulations prohibit overnight parking on the street between the hours of 2:30 AM to 6:00 AM throughout the City, unless otherwise specifically posted, or if a parking permit program is in place. There is a $50.00 fine for this infraction.
Exemptions are granted for driveway repairs and out of town overnight guests.
It is important to remember that a parking exemption will not prevent you from getting a ticket or being towed if your vehicle obstructs snow clearing or road maintenance operations. The fine for interfering with snow removal is $150.00.
Exemptions are not granted during inclement weather.
In addition, exemptions are not granted for commercial vehicles, boats/trailers, school buses, recreational vehicles, unplated vehicles, habitual offenders with outstanding parking infractions and persons who have exceeded their exemptions for the year.
There is a limit of 5 exemptions per plate per year.
Dumpsters/container bins require a road occupancy permit.
In order to obtain this exemption, the following information is required:
- Phone Number
- Vehicle License Plate Number
- Length of time
All overnight exemption requests must be received before 1:00 AM
Exemptions required for more than a 3 day period, must be requested during office hours, which are Monday to Friday between 8:30 AM. and 4:30 PM by calling 905-477-7000 Extension 2050.
