Parking in Regina may soon become more difficult during the winter as the city inches closer to implementing parking bans for snow clearing.

A recommendation for a pilot program was passed Monday for a council vote.

It comes after a recent citizen survey showed 88 per cent of residents supported the idea.

According to Chris Warren, the city’s winter maintenance branch manager, the pilot is planned to last four years and begin on arterial roads like Albert Street for the 2017/18 winter season.

“We’ll start off with a five to six kilometre trial period, but it would be a full blown communications program that we would set up and work with our parking services and towing companies,” Warren explained.

“[It’s] to ensure that that five kilometres will be successful as possible so that the following year we can take any findings from that trial and expand that and make it even better.”
