Have your say in the amount of parking provided with new homes and businesses
October 16, 2018

The number of parking spaces provided with new homes and businesses significantly impacts city spaces. Parking affects how communities look and feel, and how people get around.

When it comes to neighbourhood parking, there are often trade-offs between the amount of available parking, the cost of homes and businesses and the ability to walk to destinations. The City wants your thoughts on priorities around parking, as well as who should be responsible for making decisions about how much on-site parking is provided with new developments. Feedback is encouraged through an online survey until Monday, November 19.

Feedback will be used to help inform options for changing the zoning bylaw regulations that set out how much on-site parking is required for new homes and businesses. Edmonton has changed considerably since many existing zoning parking rules were put in place in the 1970s.

Any changes to the the parking rules must be approved by Council at a City Council Public Hearing. If new rules are approved by Council, the changes to on-site parking for homes and businesses will happen gradually as properties in the city are redeveloped.
