Residential Parking Permit Review – Update

Aug 27th, 2019 | By | Category: City News

Submitted by David C. Hill

During phase two, we had about 1200 participants provide input through the in-person and/or online engagement opportunities. We received a lot of insightful feedback that will help us make recommendations moving forward. You can read a summary of the What We Heard Report, or alternatively, you can read the full report here.

With that being said, we also recognized that there is a lot of confusion around the program, including distinguishing between the roles and responsibilities of the Calgary Parking Authority (CPA) and The City of Calgary.

The recommendations for the Residential Parking Permit Policy we present to Council will provide clear, consistent and transparent practices with respect to residential parking.

Next steps

Feedback from phase one of engagement was used to develop options to be included in the recommended changes to the Residential Parking Permit Policy. We sought input on these policy options in phase two engagement in June 2019. The input we received, along with technical expertise, are being used to develop recommendations that will be presented to the Standing Policy Committee on Transportation & Transit in Fall 2019 and then Council early 2020.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to connect directly with myself. Project updates will be posted to .
