Goals and Benefits

The goal of parking management is to balance all the competing needs for on-street parking. Customers, commercial delivery drivers, and a growing population all need access to on-street parking.

Benefits of parking management include:

  • Better livability for residents
  • Better access to local businesses for customer and freight
  • Less congestion and carbon emissions
  • Better air quality and safety for everyone
  • Less illegal parking and fewer blocked driveways with regular enforcement

We will be updating this webpage as the plan is further developed.
