How it Works

The Town is introducing Occasional Use on Street Parking Permits (OUPP) where residents or visitors can apply online for up to 12 free parking passes per vehicle each year through GTECHNA’s web portal. The OUPP would assist residents who require an extra parking space for overnight visitors or require an extra space. This will allow residents and visitors of the Town to apply for, and receive, a parking exemption for the prohibitions of parking longer than 24 hours and parking between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.

  • Permits will not be valid or issued during active snow events, which would include the day(s) before, during, or after a major event, when plowing or salting are taking place.

  • No parking within 3 meters of a fire hydrant
  • No parking within 1 meter of a driveway
  • No parking within 15 meters of an intersection
  • No parking in a fire route
  • No parking left wheels to curb, park/stop contrary to sign, etc.
