The best place for vehicles to park is in garages, driveways and parking lots. It ensures first responders have enough space to get through, road maintenance crews can keep our roads safe and residents have an improved field of vision when backing out of their driveway onto a busy street.
Town-owned streets are a shared resource that everyone has access to but are not intended for long-term parking. A vehicle can park for up to 72 consecutive hours as long as it doesn’t have parking restrictions identified, such as a sign. A vehicle parked more than 72 consecutive hours on public property or a town street is considered abandoned and could become subject to enforcement actions if merited. Please do not go on vacation leaving your car parked on the street – it could be ticketed and/or towed. Westview residents in particular should keep this in mind with a final lift of paving due to be executed on some streets in the coming weeks. Remember, this is Nanton – our Peace Officers are not out there counting how many on-street cars haven’t moved in 72 hours. Like anything else, enforcement around this is complaint and situation-driven, but please be aware of this rule.
