Parking Focus group update

Following a community meeting in January, 2013, about Parking and Traffic congestion issues in the Beach, GBNA established a Focus Group to work with Councillor McMahon’s office and City staff to better understand the key drivers behind these issues for input by the community. Our focus includes:

  1. Reviewing applicable policies
  2. Reviewing the data used by City staff in administering these policies
  3. Evaluating how well enforcement and administration follow policy

Initial meetings have been held with City of Toronto Planning staff. Since multiple causes contribute to the overall Parking problem in the Beach  (permit parking over-subscription, tourists and visitors, local businesses, new developments, etc),  the project is lengthy and our work continues in 2014.
