County of Grande Prairie residential snow removal crews will begin clearing in the subdivisions of Whispering Ridge and Westlake Estates in Clairmont on Monday, February 28.

Parking restrictions will be in place between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Crews anticipate moving to the subdivisions of Wedgewood, Taylor Estates and Maple Ridge by early next week, weather dependent.

Residents are encouraged to subscribe to stay in the know about snow removal at www.countygp.ab.ca/snowremoval. As crews make progress clearing in these residential areas and new temporary parking restrictions are put in place, updates will be emailed to webpage subscribers and appear on the interactive web map.

Motorists are reminded to watch the digital “No Parking” signs when entering select residential areas in the County, including the Hamlet of Hythe, the subdivisions of Wedgewood, Maple Ridge and Taylor Estates, as well as Whispering Ridge, Westlake Estates and 116 Ave. to 100 Ave. in the Hamlet of Clairmont. When the signs are lit, temporary parking restrictions are in place and street parking is not permitted between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Vehicles left on the street when a parking restriction is in place may be ticketed and/or towed. Residents are reminded that piling snow onto roadways is illegal and could result in a $100 fine, as it slows the snow clearing process and creates a traffic safety hazard.

This residential snow removal process including temporary parking restrictions is in place in neighbourhoods or communities with a concrete curb and gutter, and street parking. Snow removal in rural areas, and other County subdivisions with ditches along the road like Carriage Land and Goldenrod Estates, are on a separate schedule.
