Paying your Parking Ticket


Looking for long or short-term parking in Lunenburg? There are opportunities for both businesses and private citizens to share available parking for either a fee or a trade. Maybe, as a private citizen, you have a two-car driveway and have only one car. Maybe someone would trade shovelling for using your extra space. Maybe you own a business that could rent out parking to someone during your off-hours. Maybe you are a seasonal resident who would like to have a car parked in your empty driveway.

Winter Parking Advisory

Help us keep Town streets free of ice and snow by ensuring your vehicle is parked off-street during winter storm and snow removal operations. The Public Works Department can do the job more efficiently if your vehicles are not left on the street during this time. Please arrange off-street parking locations during snow clearing and salting operations. See the Parking During a Winter Storm Event and Snow Removal Map (below) for safe places to park during this time.

  2. Authorizes the Traffic Authority to have a motor vehicle moved or towed to some other place if it interferes with or obstructing snow removal or winter maintenance; and
  3. Provides that the cost of moving or towing motor vehicle can be recovered from the owner.

Please also remove potential obstacles to the sidewalk plow such as signs, planters, furniture etc.
