The Town of The Blue Mountains would like to advise the public that enforcement of the roadside parking restriction on Pretty River Road between The Blue Mountains - Clearview Townline and the Osprey-Blue Mountains Townline will begin Wednesday, November 30, 2022.

Parking restrictions for Pretty River Road were added to the Town’s Parking By-law (2022-49) earlier this year to promote public safety and address concerns related to the increase in roadside parking in this area. The sightlines and geometry of Pretty River Road do not allow adequate space for safe roadside parking, and winter conditions narrow the road even further. Roadside parking has the potential to cause a hazard for vehicles, pedestrians and maintenance works including snow removal. Parking on both sides – or even one side – of the road in this location has also proven to limit the safe and efficient movement of emergency vehicles.

To notify and enforce the parking restrictions, ‘No Parking’ signs have been installed along Pretty River Road. In addition, signs have been installed directing visitors to the Ontario Park’s public parking lot at 635397 Pretty River Road.

Municipal Law Enforcement Officers will be actively monitoring and enforcing the no parking restrictions. Vehicles found in violation may be ticketed or towed.
