Lethbridge County is considering the implementation of a parking bylaw due to complaints of commercial vehicles, trailers, RVs, and other improperly parked vehicles within the County’s residential and industrial areas. As there is currently no parking bylaw in place, the County has limited ability to enforce parking restrictions in these areas.
The proposed bylaw outlines several regulations for parking on County roads, specifically within hamlets and subdivisions. The key points include:
– Commercial vehicles and trailers (hitched or un-hitched) may not be parked on roads unless carrying out work or maintenance. These vehicles are permitted to be parked adjacent to the work site for a maximum of 10 hours between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
– No vehicle registered over 4500 kg or measuring over 6 metres in length may be parked on a road in residential or industrial areas, unless otherwise designated.
-Recreational vehicles (RVs) and trailers may only be parked on roads between May and September and must be adjacent to the owner’s/renter’s property. RVs and trailers shall not obstruct vehicle or pedestrian traffic.
-Vehicles may not park in an alley unless they are loading or unloading.
