City council approved a bylaw amendment Monday increasing parking limits from 36 hours to 72 hours, unless otherwise indicated by a sign or provided for in a bylaw.

It also doesn’t apply to areas under the residential parking program, which restricts parking to a maximum amount of time unless a valid permit is displayed.

Current residential parking programs in Saskatoon are in Caswell Hill, City Park, and Varsity View.

The amended bylaw does not affect parking limitations for recreational vehicles or restrictions for street maintenance.

Recreational vehicles continue to have a 36-hour restriction. After that, they must be moved to an off-street location for at least 48 hours before being allowed to be parked again on a residential street, the city said in a release.

Parking restrictions for street maintenance, including street sweeping, construction, snow clearing and other similar activities, will continue to be marked with signs posted 36 hours in advance, officials said.
