Parking Management Strategy
The City will be changing parking rules, regulations and rates as part of a city-wide Parking Management Strategy. We want to make sure our parking system:
- Improves availability of short-term parking spaces
- Continues to pay for itself so that general taxation is not impacted
- Offers customer service options for better customer interaction
- Provides a balanced transportation network for residents
