OurCommunity Standards Bylaw prohibits trucks in residential areas from idling for longer than 20 minutes when the truck is stationary or within 150 metres of a residential development.
To help reduce idling, we have developed a sign that can be posted in problem areas. You may download, print, and use this PDF file:
Idle Free Zone Sign
Green plastic idling signs (maximum number of two per customer) are available at no charge and white metal idling signs are available for purchase at:

Open: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday
Please note: signs must not be installed on City right-of-way.
