KELOWNA - Parking bans on designated snow routes in Wilden, the Ponds, Magic Estates and Dilworth Mountain have now been lifted. The parking bans had been in place since Monday, Feb. 6.

Even with the lift of the on-street parking ban, residents are still encouraged to move their vehicles off the road when it snows as it helps plows clear from curb to curb safely and quickly.

Residents can find out if the parking bans are in effect by:
·         Having a notice sent directly to your email inbox by signing up for Road Report news through the City’s e-subscribe channel - visit kelowna.ca/getconnected to sign up.
·         Visiting the City’s website at kelowna.ca/transportation under Snow removal & ice control.
·         Following the City’s social media channels (Facebook and Twitter @cityofkelowna).
·         Listening to local news on the radio or reading online news sites or local newspapers.
The City clears and de-ices municipal streets including snow routes by their priority classification. Priority 1 includes high-traffic roads such as Gordon Drive. Priority 2 includes collector roads such as Richter Street, bus routes, school zones, town centers and emergency vehicle stations. Priority 3 includes local roads in neighbourhoods and Priority 4 includes remaining lanes.  Highway 97 (Harvey Avenue) and Highway 33 are maintained by the Provincial Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
