Mayor Ted Luciani announced at Council Tuesday night that there would be no more parking on the boulevard. That doesn’t mean on the street, as some may have already found out. It means at the end of your driveway between the sidewalk and the road or, if you have no sidewalk, between the road and the property line (where the road allowance ends).

This is not a new by-law. Our end of our street were ticketed for when one neighbour decided to put it to her neighbours by lodging complaint back in the mid-nineties. I understood it to mean at the time that this referred to a side which was posted No Parking, but it is being more broadly applied this time.

It wasn’t said at Council, but the measure could be one in a number to respond to student misbehaviour on the weekend in the course of a Homecoming Party on Winterberry. As all laws, though, it can’t be applied only against students so, if you keep your car at the end of the driveway, you’d better expect to get ticketed.


  1. The city had better be prepared then to get the repairs done to the end of my driveway then since its in disrepair and out here in the winter time to clear the end of the driveway from the snow as well since they wish to claim it is a boulevard. they cant have it both ways. The city is responsible for clearling all city streets and boulevards as well as the repairs to them and if I fall as a result of their negligence to these issues I will certainly be suing the city since they claim they own that part of the driveway for road allowance.
