Winter overnight parking regulations

Winter overnight parking regulations will be in effect starting Nov. 15

The City of Ottawa is reminding residents that winter overnight parking regulations are in effect beginning November 15. These regulations ensure that the City’s snow-clearing crews are able to keep Ottawa’s roads safe and clear for pedestrians, cyclists, public transit, and motorists. Your safety is a top priority for the City of Ottawa.

Between November 15 and April 1, when a snowfall of 7 cm or more is forecast by Environment Canada, parking is not permitted on all Ottawa streets between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. This includes any forecast for a range of snow more than 7 cm, such as a snowfall forecast of 5 to 10 cm. Vehicles parked on the street when a restriction is in effect will be ticketed, even if it does not snow. Vehicle owners who have a municipal on-street parking permit are exempt from winter overnight parking restrictions.

Be in the know about snow. Sign up to receive e-mail or Twitter notifications of overnight parking restrictions at ottawa.ca/winterparking. After you sign up, you will receive an e-mail or Twitter alert every time a winter overnight parking restriction goes into effect or is lifted. The service is free and you can unsubscribe at anytime.

You can also find out if an overnight parking restriction is in effect by calling 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401) or by tuning in to local media.

Residents should also keep in mind that snow may be removed from city streets even when no snow is forecast. When day-time or night-time snow removal operations are planned, temporary “no parking” snow removal signs will be posted before snow removal begins. Vehicle owners are reminded not to park on streets where temporary “no parking” snow removal signs are placed. Vehicles parked during planned snow removal will be ticketed and towed to a nearby street. This restriction applies to all vehicles, including those with on-street parking permits.

Kappa Sigma Fraternity Returns for Halloween

Last year the Fraternity members of Kappa Sigma (of Carleton University) came to Half Moon Bay to provide some added safety and security for our children while out Trick or Treating.  It was a peaceful evening and we were grateful to have them.

Our community has grown, but so has the Kappa Sigma and they'll be bringing more help than last year.

The Kappa Sigma Fraternity will be returning this Halloween to do the same again for our children.  They will patrol our streets in pairs or small numbers, most of them will likely sport the Kappa Sigma hoodie/sweatshirt shown here.

Please be appreciative towards them for their help and support to our community.

Cambrian Road Improvements

I received an email today from Mattamy as many of you may have also. I'm posting it just in case others did not get this email. Good news for all of us.

Dear Mattamy Homeowner,

We are happy to advise that the section of Cambrian Road, from Cedar View Road to the west of Seeley's Bay Street, will be re-surfaced next week. This road sees its fair share of traffic as it is a main artery in and our of the Half Moon Bay community - full urbanization of this road is not anticipated for many years. To that end, we have made the City of Ottawa aware of our intentions to have this part of Cambrian Road resurfaced for the benefit of the overall community.

This work is scheduled to begin the first week of November 2011 and will likely take 3 days to complete. Once the work is completed, Cambrian Road will be dressed with a fresh new layer of asphalt from Seeley's Bay Street to Cedar View Road. As with most other road work, the crews will be out early in the morning and will work diligently to minimize inconveniences, however, disruptions in traffic flow should be expected. In an effort to keep traffic flowing, the paving crews will complete one lane at a time. Cambrian Road will remain open from Greenbank Road to Cedar View Road during this road work.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as continue working to enhance the Half Moon Bay community.

Thank you,

Mattamy Homes
