Access to Private Property Through Open Spaces Bylaw
Due to damage to City property and failure to remedy damages; the City has created the Access to Private Property Through Open Spaces Bylaw. The City Traffic Control and Waste Bylaws have also been rewritten to set the provisions to access private property through City land.

(b) set up a temporary shelter, tarp, canopy or other such device;
(c) drive or arrange for a vehicle or equipment to be driven through an open space area;
Traffic Bylaw – Dumping of Materials
Dumping of material onto city streets is not permitted. Any material must be placed on the owner’s property unless permission is granted by the Director of Infrastructure and Planning or designate. Any person or any business who will be conducting work on or around city streets must setup a safe temporary traffic control zone.
Section 4 (f) Any person or company responsible for construction, construction equipment, or material within the highway/street must setup a safe temporary work traffic control zone. At the request of the Director of Infrastructure and Planning or designate a written work zone traffic control plan may be required prior to approval for installation and setup.
