Citywide Parking Study

The City of Oshawa has initiated a citywide Parking Study (the Study) to review and assess parking requirements in the Zoning By-law for all residential uses throughout the entire city, and to review and assess parking requirements in the Zoning By-law for all uses in the downtown. Parking requirements in the Zoning By-law include but are not limited to: the number of required parking spaces; the length and width of parking spaces; and, the location of parking spaces.

The Study’s objective is to develop a parking strategy that anticipates parking demand and accommodates demand through environmentally, socially and economically sustainable policies.

Phase 1 of the Study offers three different engagement opportunities; each seeking input from the community on existing municipal parking operations, including both on street and off street, and private parking to understand the issues and concerns, as well as desired outcomes. Please share your feedback on parking in the city by:

  1. Completing the Parking Study survey, which will provide the Study team with a better understanding on how parking and transportation is used across Oshawa;
  2. Sharing your parking experiences on the crowdsourced parking map, which allows for exact areas to be pinpointed for parking-related suggestions in the city; and/or,
  3. Attending the Public Information Centre on Wednesday, April 3 between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. in Meeting Rooms 4 and 5 at the Civic Recreation Complex (99 Thornton Rd. S.) to discuss the topic with staff and consultants, IBI Group. A formal presentation will take place at 7:00 p.m.

The above mentioned survey and map engagement opportunities are available here on Connect Oshawa, as well as on paper at Service Oshawa (50 Centre St. S.) and the Public Information Centre on Wednesday, April 3.

Phase 1 feedback will be received up to and including 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24. The feedback will be considered in the development of a preliminary findings report which will include recommendations on parking requirements for residential uses throughout the entire city and all uses in the downtown. Phase 2 of the Study will present preliminary findings and recommendations to the community for review and comment anticipated in fall 2019.
