Rescind the Winter Parking Ban
To: The Mayor and Council of Halifax Regional Municipality We, the undersigned, are all citizens of this city. WE HEREBY PROTEST the declaration of the WINTER PARKING REGULATIONS requiring all vehicles to be off the street from 1:00 AM TO 7:00 AM from December 15, 2008 to March 30, 2009 due to the FINANCIAL BURDEN of renting off-street parking due to the LACK OF PARKING near our residences, the SAFETY OF CITIZENS having to walk long distances from their vehicles late at night, and the UNNECCESSARY AND UNREASONABLE NATURE of the regulations. These regulations have been declared with only a few days notice in the midst of RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURES IN HRM. They represent a SAFETY RISK and ADDITIONAL COSTS for citizens to bear in clearing city streets which IS ALREADY PAID FOR THROUGH OUR TAXES. Furthermore, these regulations unreasonably require citizens to park their vehicles off the street even if there is no accumulated snow or predicted storms. WE DEMAND THAT THESE WINTER PARKING REGULATIONS BE WITHDRAWN IMMEDIATELY.
