Fall Sweep Begins in Select Neighbourhoods
The fall street sweep begins Monday, October 17 in areas with mature trees and where street flooding can become problematic. Residents living in the Crescents, Cathedral, Lakeview, North Central, and the General Hospital area including Centre Square and Heritage neighbourhoods, are encouraged to watch for signs and park off-street on sweep days.
City crews will complete the fall sweep between 4 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday until October 28, weather dependent. Residents are asked to watch for signs. Cars that are parked in a No Parking zone will be ticketed and towed. If a car is towed, it will be moved within a two to four block radius of the area.
Parking off-street and sharing driveways with neighbours allows the sweeper to access curbs, parking lanes and storm drains to pick up leaves and reduce neighbourhood drainage issues.
Residents are encouraged to download the new, free Sweep&Plow app through the Apple App store or on Google Play to get alerts to move their car. Alternatively, they can sign up for customized notifications, including email or phone, at Regina.ca/sweep.
Street sweepers can create dusty conditions that reduce visibility. Please close windows and walk on alternative sidewalks. When driving, provide the sweeping equipment with lots of room, slow down and be safe. The City of Regina thanks residents for their cooperation in the fall sweep program.
People living in all neighbourhoods can help with the fall clean-up. Before winter comes, prepare for next year’s spring melt by removing leaves and debris away from nearby sewer drains.
