Revision of the regulation on overnight parking in Chateauguay

Under municipal regulations 4.7, the parking of vehicles is prohibited on all streets of the municipality, from December 1st to April 1st, between 23: 00h and 6 h, to ensure cleaning of the road network. "

We think, by the fact that this Regulation should be revised.

The winters are not what they were, and often the first snow does not arrive before mid-December, which complicates the parking of citizens unnecessarily for a month.

We offer in this air technology, the city revises its approach as well as overnight parking permissions street. A notable example of adaptation to the needs of citizens by modern winters are the rules adopted in 1121 by the city of Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu, who said that "Between December 1 and March 31 of the following year, winter overnight parking is allowed at any time on municipal roads and parking lots. "

Of course, the "Parking is prohibited on public roads and in the municipal parking lots at night, between 23 pm and 6 am [only] when a snow removal operation is ordered by the Public Works and as this operation does is declared over. When snow removal operation is ordered, it is announced every day from 17 am through a telephone message on Info-snow line and on the information tools provided for this purpose. "

The cities of Longueuil and Lévis have also adopted a similar regulation.

We therefore believe that the City of Chateauguay should adjust its rules on night parking on streets in winter and, based on a similar approach to the city of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, a daily review of the law parking on street
