Starting Dec. 1, overnight on-street parking restrictions take effect in the City of Barrie. The restrictions are effective annually from Dec. 1 to Mar. 31.

As per the Overnight Parking By-law, on-street parking is not permitted from 3 to 6 a.m. within the Downtown Business Improvement Area, and on other city streets from 12:01–7 a.m., Dec. 1 through Mar. 31. This ensures the city can completely clear streets of snow and that large emergency vehicles can get down the street.

Outside of Dec. 1 through Mar. 31, overnight on-street parking will not be permitted should a "Winter Maintenance Event" be declared (communicated via, Facebook and Twitter).

Winter Maintenance Events can be declared when anticipated weather requires snow plowing, sanding, salting, direct liquid application, snow removal or other winter maintenance operations.
