Residential Parking Permits are Going Digital!
On May 9, 2017, Council approved changes to the Calgary Traffic Bylaw that allow the Residential Parking Permit (RPP) program to use electronic rather than physical permits. Click here to find out more.
Street Sweeping - General Information
The CPA provides enforcement support to The City of Calgary during their Spring Clean-up program. Spring clean-up is an annual street sweeping program that removes sanding materials and debris that have accumulated on roads and along major sidewalks and boulevards during the winter months.
The 2017 spring clean-up street sweeping program begins on Monday, April 3rd and is expected to be complete the beginning of June. For in-depth information on this program, including sweeping schedules and background information please go to www.calgary.ca/sweep.
Citizens will see the following signage posted notifying them of upcoming street sweeping in their community.
The City will be putting up signage at the main entrances with a date range in which street sweeping will occur.
Parking Ban Signage
These smaller, 3 foot tall, signs mean a parking ban is in effect during the date and time on the sign. Citizens must remove their vehicle(s) from the roadway into an area that not under a parking ban to avoid being ticketed and/or short-towed. These parking ban signs are put out by City Roads at least 12 hours in advance of the parking ban.
Street sweeping begins on Monday April 3, 2017.
Ticket & Short Tow statistics will be updated on the following dates:
Wednesday, April 5
Fridays: April 7, 14*, 21, 28, May 5, 12, 19, 26
*We will update the stats on April 13th due to April 14th being Good Friday.
NOTE: Variance between the 'Tag' and 'Tow' statistics is typically due to inadequate parking ban signage present, which could be a result of them being moved or knocked over (higher tow numbers). Whereas higher tag numbers are typically a result of a vehicle owner moving their vehicle prior to a tow truck arriving.
*Weekly breakdown of 2016 statistics is unavailable.
