Newmarket residents and overnight visitors are now able to apply for temporary parking exemptions online. A temporary parking exemption allows individuals to park their cars on the road only in areas where parking longer than three hours is not permitted. The exemption does not exempt individuals from following all posted parking regulations, such as no parking zones, in front of fire hydrants, in a fire route or in a bike lane. Council approved the use of an online system, making the process for requesting a temporary parking exemption easier and more efficient. Individuals can now request overnight parking exemptions by simply filling out an online application form.
Individuals will be limited to a maximum of 15 temporary parking exemptions per a year.
