CORNWALL, Ontario – The City of Cornwall have reverted their street parking rules.

For the past three years, cars have been permitted to park on the street, where parking was allowed, for up to seven days without moving.

With the introduction of By-Law 2019-112, cars are now again permitted to park on the street for only 24 hours.

“Please note that this rule is in effect only where there are no other signs restricting parking to a particular period of time, and when overnight winter parking restrictions are not in effect,” reads a statement from the City of Cornwall. “The 24-hour restriction returns the City of Cornwall to a previous by-law standard. For the past three years, the restriction was 7 days. Previous to 2016, the limit was 24 hours.”

The City of Cornwall states that the by-law has been changed due to complaints from the public.

The City encourages anyone with any questions to call 613-930-2787 ext. 2225.
