Residential street sweeping has started in Red Deer

Parked vehicles should be moved before sweepers arrive

Residential street sweeping has started in Red Deer.

The city is asking residents to help by moving their cars off the roads before sweepers arrive.

“We know there are many Red Deerians following AHS guidelines and staying home. This means there are more cars on the streets, when typically, there would be less,” said public works manager Greg Sikora.

“In light of the unique circumstances this year, we will not be issuing tickets to cars left on the street when crews come through. However, they will be towed to an adjacent street.”

Crews will begin cleaning sand and debris from Grey Routes throughout the city before moving onto Green Routes.

Like last year, the street sweeping schedule will follow the snow control pattern and start with neighbourhoods in Zone H.

Residents can sign up to receive a text, email or phone call reminder about parking restrictions during street sweeping in residential areas.

As with snow zone alerts, residents must sign up for Notify Red Deer and select Street Sweeping Alerts to receive these reminders.

Those who have already signed up can simply log in at reddeer.ca/notifyreddeer and update their alert preferences.
