Week in Review

 

On Street Parking Petition

We have had questions from residents regarding on street parking restrictions and options available to address the issue in certain areas of Kanata South. On street parking becomes an issue for residents when homeowners do not have enough parking on their property to accommodate their personal needs.

Why this becomes a community issue and a trigger for visits from Parking Control Officers is that the vehicles on the public roadway can restrict cars moving on the road, prevent garbage trucks, school buses, delivery trucks or even emergency vehicles from getting to homes on the street.

An option that has been used successfully in our community and across the city to help remedy the congestion that can be found on residential roadways, is the petition process. Changes to any parking regulations must be circulated through a formal petition process so that every resident on the street knows about the proposed change. The Traffic Department can review the roadway and work with the resident who is inquiring to draft proposed changes that are desired, however, this will require a resident with an address on the street to circulate the petition with neighbours and obtain 66% concurrence through the form of signatures. This rule stops someone who parks on your street, but does not live there from making changes to it without your knowledge. The Traffic Department will identify and include any addresses that need to be included on the petition. Upon successful completion, they will review and request consent from the Ward Councillor. As such, this ensures that any residents who would be impacted by changes to on-street parking are able to participate in the decision process to ensure their support or disagreement is considered.

If you or any of your neighbours would like to learn additional information about changing the on-street parking regulations for your street, please contact my office and we would be pleased to connect you with the Traffic Assessment Specialist to discuss in further detail.
