Overnight Street Parking Request

You cannot park on Markham streets between the hours of 2:30 AM and 6 AM. You can only park on the street if signs tell you that it is allowed, or there is a parking permit program in place. You will be fined $50 for breaking these rules.

The City can make exceptions for driveway repairs and out of town overnight guests.

Remember, a parking exemption won't stop you from getting a ticket or being towed if your vehicle blocks snow clearing or road maintenance. You will be fined $150 for blocking or interfering with snow removal.

Effective November 15th, the maximum parking exemption to be given is one night, weather permitting. All parking on all City streets is prohibited during snow clearing operations. Existing parking permits and overnight exemptions held by residents are not valid during snow clearing operations. Vehicles parked on a city street during snow clearing operations will be ticketed and/or towed. The fine for “Interfering with Snow Removal” is $150. Residents can expect snow clearing to begin at the start of any snowfall and continue for up to the next 24 hours.

Between November 15 and April 15, and only when snow clearing operations are not in effect, vehicles should only be parked on the odd numbered side of city streets, unless posted signs indicate otherwise.

You need a road occupancy permit for dumpsters and container bins.
