Starting Monday, April 28 towing and parking bans for Spring Clean-up operations will be enforced by The Calgary Parking Authority.
This means that if a parking ban is in effect, any vehicle that has not been removed from the area will be tagged and towed to a nearby road if space is available, or to the City of Calgary's impound lot.
Vehicles are fined and towed only if a "No Parking" sign (i.e. parking ban) is in effect. The City of Calgary, Roads pays for towing; the vehicle owner pays the parking ticket and impound fee, if applicable.
If parking has not been legally banned but the street cleaning signs are up, crews will sweep around vehicles. The Parking Ban Signs (No Parking Signs) are the small 3-feet high signs that have the No Parking symbol on them, and not the large street cleaning schedule signs.
It is important to note that crews will not come back to sweep the street again, so it’s important to move your vehicle even when there is no penalty for not doing so.
To find out how these operations will impact your parking situation, please consult the interactive map.
The City of Calgary would like to thank you for your cooperation at this time, for more information regarding the Spring Clean-up program please visit calgary.ca/sweep or contact 311.
