Winter weather has arrived and serves as reminder of our shared role in keeping roads and sidewalks clear.
Did you know? The Town of Georgina is responsible for clearing 333 kilometres of roads, 140 kilometres of sidewalks and 25 municipal parking lots.
No parking – As per the Traffic and Parking By-law, parking is not permitted on most streets from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m., Nov. 15 through April 15. This helps the Town clear streets of snow overnight with the least impact to residents and businesses. Residents are required to keep parked vehicles off Town roads for at least 24 hours in the event of a Winter Maintenance Event.
Don’t throw snow or ice on the road when clearing your driveway or sidewalk – It’s against the law, contributes to unsafe driving and walking conditions, and increases the cost of providing winter road maintenance.
Regional roads – York Region plows the major roads in Georgina such as Dalton Road, High Street, Ravenshoe Road, Woodbine Avenue and Baseline Road. An interactive map that highlights all regional roads in Georgina and York Region can be found at york.ca/roads.
When driving in winter conditions, remember to allow for extra time and space on the roads. The Town encourages everyone to drive safely.
