5-hr on-street parking starts June 1

Burlington on-street parking 5 hoursBeginning June 1, on-street parking throughout the city will be increased from three hours to five hours. The change was made in response to resident requests to accommodate holiday parties and family events that extend past three hours. For simplicity, council made the rule 24-7 rather than just on weekends and holidays.

The only exception is on-street metered (pay) parking downtown which will remain at three hours maximum. Non-metered parking is at five hours.

There is no overnight parking permitted on any street in Burlington, between 1am – 6am; there is no on-street parking allowed during snow removal activities.

In downtown Burlington, overnight parking is permitted in city-owned parking lots and the parking garage, free of charge after 6pm and before 9am weekdays, and all day Saturday, Sunday and holidays.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.
