Public meeting on parking issues

A public information session on existing and future parking needs will be held Tuesday at city hall.
The 6-8 p.m. Feb. 26 session in Meeting Room C will include a formal presentation at 6:30 p.m. Before and after this, people will have an opportunity to discuss current parking issues and future objectives with city staff, a news release said.
A second public information session will be held at the end of March to help the city with its parking master plan study, which is focusing on downtown Guelph and surrounding areas, the release said.
The master plan study for the next 10 to 20 years will consider existing parking needs and policies, develop future forecasts of parking demand, and identify alternative methods of providing and managing parking, it said.
“Parking impacts all residents of Guelph and is one of the biggest factors in achieving a successful urban area,” Allister McILveen, the city’s manager of traffic and parking, said in the release. “Too little parking can affect visitation and business viability, while providing too much parking is expensive and can delay our plans to grow the city more efficiently and sustainably.”
The two information sessions are for residents, business owners and operators, landowners and others who are concerned about parking issues, the release said.
It’s expected the parking study will be completed by April. A major initial task of the study will be to collect data on existing parking demand and supply, the release said. “Once the challenges and opportunities are fully documented, a set of alternative solutions will be evaluated and presented to the public for comment.”
