Late Evening Alley Access Bylaw now in effect in North Battleford
In an effort to curb overnight traffic in city alleyways, North Battleford’s new Late Evening Alley Access Bylaw (Bylaw No. 2145) came into effect on January 1, 2024 in the city.
The Bylaw was passed by North Battleford City Council in late 2023 with the intent to limit alleyway access to the general public in the interest of community safety. Those travelling on foot or using vehicles, including bicycles, are prohibited from accessing alleyways in the city between the hours of 11pm and 6am. Exemptions are made within this Bylaw for a number of groups, including those accessing alleys adjacent to their properties, authorized guests of residents, emergency services personnel, and delivery or utility services requiring access to the alley.
Individuals found to be in contravention of the Bylaw by RCMP or Community Safety Officers may face fines up to a maximum of $2500. Those with questions about the Bylaw may contact the City Clerk at 306-445-1719 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
