Public input sought as part of overnight on-street parking review

Guelph, ON, February 13, 2014 – The City is seeking public feedback as part of the overnight on-street parking review.

“City staff are reviewing Guelph’s current overnight on-street parking restrictions. As part of this review, staff will examine options that may potentially maintain, add to, change or eliminate the existing overnight on-street parking by-law,” explained Allister McILveen, manager of Traffic and Parking.

The review will include community engagement, consultation with City departments, and a review of overnight on-street parking restrictions in comparable municipalities.

Two public consultation sessions will be held during the review to provide an opportunity for community input and feedback. The first consultation session is scheduled for Wednesday, February 26 from 6-8 p.m. at City Hall.

Those unable to attend the consultation session are invited to provide comments by participating in an online survey. The survey will be open from February 13 to March 12, on guelph.ca/parking.

The current overnight on-street parking by-law restricts parking on city streets from 2-6 a.m. during the winter season from November 1 to April 30. However, a number of streets, generally located in older areas of the city are exempted from this restriction.

Staff plan to bring recommendations regarding overnight on-street parking to the Operations, Transit and Emergency Services Committee of Council in July 2014.
