The Sainte-Thérésiens will be happy to learn that the winter night parking sticker is back for the 2020-2021 season. This pilot project launched last year allows citizens having procured a sticker to park their vehicles on public roads without being exposed to the issuance of a statement of offense, from the 1st of December to the 15th of March, from midnight to 7 a.m.
However, it is important to specify that this parking authorization is suspended during snow removal operations. Citizens are notified of the start and end of operations by email and / or text. They can also reach an automated voicemail box at any time to find out if a parking ban is in effect.
“We sold just over 550 stickers last year, an experience that turned out to be more positive. We therefore wanted to continue to offer this alternative of overnight parking during the winter period to Teresians who need it. The stickers make their life easier when there is no operation in progress on the territory, ”said the mayoress of Sainte-Thérèse, Ms. Sylvie Surprenant.
New this year, the city is divided into three zones according to snow removal operations specific to each. A zone map and a search tool are available on the Town’s website to find out in which zone the street is located where a citizen wishes to park his vehicle.
As of November 9, the stickers will be on sale online via the City’s website (allow for a handling and delivery time by mail) or in person at the Citizen’s House ( 37, rue Turgeon), during opening hours.
Exceptionally, the latter will also be open on Thursday, November 19, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., for the sale of stickers. Proof of residence (eg: driver’s license or tax bill) or a Citizen’s Card validis required for a purchase at the Maison du citoyen, while a valid Citizen’s Card is required to obtain a sticker online.
Those who are interested in obtaining a sticker must first register online for the automated emergency message system in order to receive snow removal notices. It is possible to enter the contact details of all people living at the same address who will use the stickers to receive notices. Notices are sent by email and / or text only.
The registration to the automated message system of citizens who had a sticker last year remains valid. However, if changes have occurred to the contact information in their file, they must make them themselves by accessing the system. They must then obtain a new sticker for the 2020-2021 season.
