Riverview Launches New Alert System Alongside Update to Winter Parking Restrictions

RIVERVIEW (N.B.) – Residents can now subscribe to text and/or email notifications for road closures and restrictions and emergency alerts.  

“The more ways we can engage and inform residents - especially in emergency situations - the better,” explained Mayor Andrew J. LeBlanc. “With an increase in severe weather events, and our focus on emergency preparedness as a safe and inclusive community, this type of system allows us to better communicate important information where folks are most likely to receive it. Residents can opt-in for text or email alerts, as well as access the online dashboard to get real-time data on weather, parking restrictions and more.” 

The Town’s new alerts dashboard launch coincides with new rules surrounding the municipality’s winter parking ban, taking effect December 1, 2023. 

Effective December 1, 2023, overnight parking is permitted on most town streets except when snow-clearing and ice removal operations are expected or taking place. Residents are responsible for staying informed on whether a parking ban is in place in their area.  

  • Notice of overnight parking restrictions will be issued by 4 p.m. on our new dashboard at www.riverviewalerts.ca  
  • On-street parking will not be permitted from midnight to 7 a.m. when restrictions are in place   
  • An overnight parking ban may remain active for more than one consecutive day   
  • Always check for updates before parking on the street from December 1 – April 1  
  • Vehicles parked on the street when restrictions are in place risk being ticketed and/or towed.  

The Town would like to remind residents that in the event of a storm they are responsible for removing all road obstructions, including hockey nets, basketball nets, and anything that may interfere with snow clearing operations. Municipal by-law also prohibits residents from pushing snow back onto the road while clearing driveways and sidewalks.
