End of Tolerance Parking on Merrimac, Sir Walter Scott and Kildare

Mayor Anthony Housefather and I will be sending the following letter out to the owners of vehicles who have been parking on the street without permits for the past several weeks:

Dear residents,

The overnight parking tolerance that is currently in effect in this area of Ilan Ramon Cres., Sir Walter Scott Ave., Kildare Rd., Rembrandt Ave., and Merrimac Ave. is ending on Monday, July 26 at 8am. Because of road and aqueduct network renovations and two indoor parking garage repairs currently underway in the area, we can no longer allow all vehicles to park on the street overnight.

Any vehicle that does not have a valid overnight parking permit starting July 26 may be ticketed and/or towed, at the owner’s expense.

As an alternative to the overnight parking tolerance, (1) we are offering residents free parking at the city snow dump, and (2) temporary overnight parking permits are also available for guests.

1. Parking at the snow dump for residents

Residents can now park their vehicles for free at the city’s snow dump on Marc Chagall Ave., provided that they complete and return the application form. The snow dump has been inspected by the Quebec Ministry of the Environment, who has deemed it safe for parking. Parking in this lot is nonetheless at the owner’s risk. Only vehicles authorized by the city may park in this lot and unauthorized vehicles may be ticketed and/or towed.

To apply, complete the enclosed form and return to City Hall by mail or in person. Requests will be processed by the Public Security office and we will notify you by telephone if your application is approved.

2. Temporary overnight parking permits for overnight guests

Overnight guests may still obtain a temporary overnight parking permit by calling the Public Security office at 514-485-6960, 24-hours-a-day. Requests may need to be validated by a Public Security agent and proof of address may be required. Temporary permits for granted for a maximum of three days.
