Origin

(January 23, 2020) Letter from Councillor Cynthia Lai, Ward 23, Scarborough North

Summary

After hearing from numerous residents of my ward regarding their concerns about the lack of adequate on-site parking on their properties, I have concluded that their long term parking needs could perhaps be satisfied through the City's Residential On-street Permit Parking Program. The areas of the City that currently allow for residential permit parking are: Toronto and East York, areas of Etobicoke York, North York and certain areas of Scarborough. This program is currently not in place for ward 23, however, because this area is included in the definition for "Excluded Area" under Chapter 925, Permit Parking. Under section 925-4C of Chapter 925, permit parking will not apply to the excluded area as defined, meaning, among other things, that staff are unable to designate roads or areas within the excluded area as permit parking roads or areas even where staff are in receipt of a petition from residents. This motion seeks to remove the following area from the definition of excluded area under Chapter 925, Permit Parking, such that streets within this area can be considered for permit parking through the petition and polling process.
