Upcoming Engagement Opportunities

Urban Planning Committee

On January 28, 2020, City Administration will be bringing a report forward to Urban Planning Committee containing:

  • One-step and phased options for implementing open option parking. Open option parking will allow homeowners and business to decide how much on-site parking to provide on their property to serve visitors and customers.
  • A comprehensive review of the on-street parking implications of changing on-site parking rules.
  • Further research on predictors of parking demand.

Edmontonians will have an opportunity to provide input on the draft report before it advances to Urban Planning Committee.  Please use the stay informed link below to be added to the mailing list to receive a copy of the draft report. 

Edmontonians will also have an opportunity to share their views on this report directly with Council by registering to speak once the Committee meeting agenda has been posted.

Engagement History

Draft Regulation Options Survey

In February 2019, the City released a draft recommendation report that looked at different options for regulating parking in Edmonton. This included:

  • Minimum parking requirements, where the City determines a set number of parking spaces that must be provided
  • Open option parking, where businesses and homeowners can choose the amount of parking they provide
  • Maximum parking requirements, where the City sets an upper limit on the number of spaces that can be provided 

Over 4,100 Edmontonians provided their input on the options presented in the draft recommendation report via an online survey that was conducted in February 2019. 

The information we heard from Edmontonians was used to update the report to address common concerns prior to the report advancing to the May 7, 2019 Urban Planning Committee meeting (item 6.1).

Parking Trade-offs and Outcomes Survey

The City conducted a survey about the trade-offs and priorities around parking, as well as who should be responsible for making decisions about how much on-site parking is provided with new homes and businesses.

In addition to an 800-person phone survey, an online version of the survey was open for feedback between Wednesday October 17, 2018 and Monday November 19, 2018. The survey results outline Edmontonians values and priorities related to parking. 

Engage Edmonton Events

Edmontonians were invited to share their voices and help shape our city by attending one of the family-friendly Engage Edmonton drop in events, which ran from Thursday October 11 to Thursday November 15, 2018.  The feedback from these events is being reviewed and the results of the engagement will be shared in a council report in the first half of 2019.
