ABOUT THE PROJECT

The City of Calgary is currently reviewing its Residential Parking Permit (RPP) program to improve customer service, increase long-term financial stability, and ensure efficient use of street space.

The program is currently in all quadrants of the city, typically in inner-city communities and near parking generators (e.g. LRT stations, post-secondary institutions, hospitals, etc.). Calgarians living in areas where the program is located are able to get parking permits which exempt them from on-street restrictions.

We want to understand how the Residential Parking Permit Program is, or is not, meeting your needs.


PROVIDE YOUR INPUT

Residential Parking impacts homeowners /renters, and people visiting a home or a commercial space. A commercial space could be a business, hospital, post-secondary institution, etc.

We want to understand the impacts that the current program has on people from each of these points of view. Please consider each when thinking about the impact of the Residential Parking Permit program. Your feedback will help The City of Calgary make changes to the current program that are reflective of you and your parking needs.

Please take a moment to reflect on the questions below and provide your feedback. The questions are the same for each perspective as we want you to consider each point of view. We encourage you to respond from one, two or all three points of view.

A number of features you would encounter in Residential Parking Permit zones are included below. If you would like more information on any of these, please review the Residential Parking Permit booklet.

Alternatively, if you are interested in attending an in-person engagement session in January, please see the key dates on the right of this page.
