How parking is provided has a significant impact on what our communities look like. Edmonton’s current parking framework was put in place in 1974. As a result, the assumptions, analysis, and overall approach to city building that underlies the existing parking requirements in the Zoning Bylaw needs to be updated.
About the Project
The review will develop new Zoning Bylaw parking regulations that reflect a different approach to off-street parking and support building a more compact, livable and sustainable city.
The comprehensive review project will be undertaken in three parts:
- Collecting and analyzing parking data
Use an evidence-based, data driven approach to developing the new regulations.
- Sharing what we learned from the data analysis
Engage Edmontonians and stakeholders to inform the new parking regulations.
- Introducing new parking regulations into Zoning Bylaw 12800
Develop new Zoning Bylaw regulations for parking that reflect a new approach to off-street parking and supports city-building goals.
This project is currently at the information gathering stage.
Following the information stage, draft amendments will be developed and available for public comment. It is anticipated these changes will be presented to Urban Planning Committee in June 2018.
Opportunities for the public to provide input on the different approaches to regulating parking are being planned for 2018.
