Special Event Parking
The Special Event Parking regulation allows residents and their visitors to park on the street during special events. The regulation prohibits parking on specific streets, unless you have a Special Event Parking Permit. Temporary signs are placed at all major entrances to identify where parking is restricted.
While Parking Control Officers try to use discretion during all special events, the areas around Tim Hortons Field and Winona Peach Festival have been given specific time exemptions and parking is allowed four hours before an event starts until two hours after an event has ended. This by-law does not apply to rural or agricultural properties.
