Upcoming Engagement Opportunities

Urban Planning Committee

City Administration will be bringing an information report to Urban Planning Committee on May 7, 2019.  This report highlights how research findings and public input suggest that Edmonton should move towards the open parking option, where businesses and homeowners can choose the amount of on-site parking they provide.  

The report will give members of Council an opportunity to review the research findings and provide further guidance before City Administration moves forward with specific recommendations on how to best  implement changes to Edmonton's parking regulations.

The full report will be available on the afternoon of May 2 on the Urban Planning Committee Agenda website, and you can request to speak at Committee.

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, and
  • 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.

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.
