5-hr on-street parking starts June 1

Burlington on-street parking 5 hoursBeginning June 1, on-street parking throughout the city will be increased from three hours to five hours. The change was made in response to resident requests to accommodate holiday parties and family events that extend past three hours. For simplicity, council made the rule 24-7 rather than just on weekends and holidays.

The only exception is on-street metered (pay) parking downtown which will remain at three hours maximum. Non-metered parking is at five hours.

There is no overnight parking permitted on any street in Burlington, between 1am – 6am; there is no on-street parking allowed during snow removal activities.

In downtown Burlington, overnight parking is permitted in city-owned parking lots and the parking garage, free of charge after 6pm and before 9am weekdays, and all day Saturday, Sunday and holidays.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
