(January 15, 2018) Report from the Acting Director, Transportation Infrastructure Management

Summary

City Council, at its meeting of December 5, 6, 7 and 8, 2017 adopted the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee Item PW25.12 entitled, "Curbside Management Strategy: Improving How Curbside Space Is Used." In so doing, Council approved a number of priority 'Quick Win' tactics to be initiated as soon as practicable.

 

The purpose of this report is to outline the non-delegated traffic and parking by-law amendments required to initiate three of these 'Quick Wins', as follows:

Allowing taxicab operators to park or stand at specific designated hydrant locations;
converting existing 'advisory' courier loading zones to designated delivery vehicle parking zones; and
installing on-street designated motorcycle parking zones in specific designated pay-and-display areas.
 

A companion report, "Curbside Management Strategy - Parking Amendments –Delegated Locations", outlines the required delegated traffic and parking by-law amendments for further locations of specific designated taxicab stand areas, delivery vehicle parking zones and motorcycle parking zones.
