Survey and public meeting examine overnight parking

The contentious issue of overnight on-street parking is being studied by city hall. It’s conducting an online survey and will hold an initial public-feedback meeting on Wednesday Feb. 26.
“City staff are reviewing Guelph’s current overnight on-street parking restrictions. As part of this review, staff will examine options that may potentially maintain, add to, change or eliminate the existing overnight on-street parking by-law,” Allister McILveen, the city’s manager of traffic and parking, said in a news release.
The review will include public consultations and a look at overnight on-street parking restrictions in comparable cities.
Two public consultation sessions will be held during the review to allow for community input and feedback, the release said. The first is on Feb. 26 from 6-8 p.m. at city hall. Those unable to attend can provide comments by participating in an online survey, which runs to March 12 at
The city’s current overnight on-street parking bylaw restricts parking on city streets from 2-6 a.m. during the winter season from Nov. 1 to April 30.
However, a number of streets, generally located in older areas of the city, are exempted from this restriction, the release said.
A staff report with recommendations about overnight on-street parking is to go to a city council committee in July.
