Parking on the Halifax Common

Entrance to Temporary Garages on North Common at North ParkParking on the Halifax Common is illegal and signs are posted.  At a fundraiser held on Saturday June 7th up to 100 vehicles were parked on the North Common and at the Pavilion on the Central Common. Why didn’t  HRM staff on duty have the parking ban enforced?  Was it because they didn’t know, because permission was given or because they chose to ignore it?  Parking on the Common isn’t a new problem but it is getting worse.
