Info-Snow

 

Latest Update

Night of March 19 to 20

Parking is ALLOWED

  

IMPORTANT:

Even when street parking is allowed, it is ALWAYS PROHIBITED in the commercial axis (rue Sainte-Anne, rue Lalonde and parking lot in front of City Hall) between 4 am and 7 am.

In the South sector, this measure is valid only for cars with parking stickers for residents or temporary permits. In the North sector, residents, when permitted, can park without a sticker. However, please note that residents of the North sector cannot park in the South sector without a sticker.

 

Pilot Projet

At the December 10th Council meeting, City Council made the decision to set up a pilot project to allow overnight parking when weather conditions permit it. In order to implement this pilot project, the City has set up an Info-Snow telephone line.

Thus, every day, starting at 4 pm, it will be possible for citizens to call 514-457-1001 to find out if the ban on parking is lifted or not from 1 am the next night. The same information will also be available on this page.

The decision to lift the ban or not will depend on weather conditions and snow removal operations planned by the Public Works Department.

It is the responsibility of every vehicle owner to check daily for updates before parking their car during the ban period. If the ban is not lifted, the current regulation is applied and offenders are subject to the fines set out in Parking By-law 769.

Finally, please note that City Council reserves the right to terminate the pilot project at any time if it proves inconclusive.

 

Overnight Parking Regulations

From December 1st to March 31st, it is strictly forbidden to park a road vehicle on public roads:

  • between 1 am and 6 am in the North sector
  • between 1 am and 7 am in the South sector

This ban is also valid for parking sticker holders during this period.

You may park your vehicle in any of the authorized public parking lots during permitted hours (see parking signs). Notwithstanding the preceding, no vehicle may be parked for more than 48 hours in the same spot.

 

Snow Removal Operations

The Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Public Works department is in charge of organizing and carrying out snow removal operations. 

During snow loading operations, the teams may proceed with the installation of temporary parking prohibition signs the day before its crews pass on a given street. In order to facilitate the work and prevent your car from being towed, please follow the signage.

For the safety of all, never leave snow near or on a fire hydrant. Its perimeter must always remain clear within 1.5 m (5 feet).

Please note that snow removal is done by a private contractor in the North sector and by City employees in the South sector.

 

Reminders

Waste Collection

In the event of a snowstorm, please keep an eye on our newsletters and social media to see if collections are going to take place as planned. They may be postponed to facilitate snow removal.

We remind you that your bins must be placed at the curb before 7 am on the day of collection, the wheels facing your residence. Please ensure that the bins are visible and positioned 1 m (3 feet) from the edge of the street or sidewalk so as not to impede traffic or snow removal.

Safety Instructions

It is strictly forbidden to push, throw or deposit snow or ice from their land or lot, on the public domain. Be sure to notify your contractor. Offenders will be fined. 

Also, monitor the condition of your roof so that no accumulation of snow or ice can come off and cause an accident.

For safety reasons, do not let children play near the curb or the street. While playing, they could slip on the road. At all times, watch this type of games during the winter.

 

Extreme Cold

During the winter, we must all adopt safe behaviors to protect our health. Here are some tips to follow to enjoy the season safely:

  • Keep the ambient temperature of your home at a minimum of 19 °C
  • Caulk doors and windows to prevent cold air infiltration
  • If you use a wood stove or an auxiliary heating system, make sure the room is well ventilated
  • Dress in layers of clothing
  • Make sure to cover your head, nose, mouth, neck, hands and feet
  • If you have to stay outdoors for a long period of time, take shelter regularly in hot, wind-free places
  • Call loved ones to make sure they are alright
