Parking

Snow Event

A snow event has been issued for the Town. No parking on Town streets is permitted at this time.

Last Updated: 3:14 p.m. 

When a snow event is declared there is to be no parking on any Town road (including unassumed roads), to allow for snow removal operations to occur.

Parking consideration forms will no longer be valid when a snow event is declared. Residents are responsible to check here, on Facebook or Twitter to see if a snow event has been declared. Any vehicles found on Town roadways during a snow event may be ticketed or towed at the Owner’s expense.

Snow events are declared when roads require snow clearing maintenance, including plowing, sanding, salting, etc. For more information on snow clearing in East Gwillimbury, click here.

Parking Restrictions

The Town has a year-round three hour parking limit on all Town roads, unless otherwise posted. The Town offers a parking exemption period from 7 to 11 p.m. in addition to the 3-hour parking limit, except during a snow event. Parking consideration forms are available for special occasion overnight parking. Parking patrol is conducted on a daily basis.

Parking tickets are also issued for a number of violations as per the Town’s Parking By-law.  

If you receive a parking ticket you have three options:

  1. Pay the set fine as prescribed on the Parking Infraction Notice (ticket).  Payment can be made in person at the Civic Centre, by mail, or by depositing a cheque along with the ticket into the drop box located at the front doors of the Civic Centre.
  2. Dispute the ticket: you must first call the Town office at 905-478-4282 to book a First Attendance appointment with a By-law staff member.  If the matter is not resolved you may, at this time, request a trial.
  3. Trial: after you have attended the Civic Centre for a First Attendance meeting and wish to dispute the ticket further, you can then fill out an “Intention to Appear” to have a trial scheduled.  Once the forms have been filled out they will be sent to the courts and you will receive a notice in the mail advising you of your trial date.

Parking Consideration Forms

The Town of East Gwillimbury accepts requests for parking consideration from the three hour maximum for special circumstances such as out-of-town guests, driveway repairs, or special occasions. Considerations are issued for short-term use only and at the discretion of the By-law Department. Once the parking consideration form is received a by-law officer will respond indicating if the request is approved or denied. Parking considerations are not valid during a snow event. All vehicles are to be removed to allow for snow clearing operations.
