Draft Regulation Options Survey
In February 2019, the City released a draft recommendation report that looked at different options for regulating parking in Edmonton. This included:
- Minimum parking requirements, where the City determines a set number of parking spaces that must be provided
- Open option parking, where businesses and homeowners can choose the amount of parking they provide
- Maximum parking requirements, where the City sets an upper limit on the number of spaces that can be provided
Over 4,100 Edmontonians provided their input on the options presented in the draft recommendation report via an online survey that was conducted in February 2019.
The information we heard from Edmontonians was used to update the report to address common concerns prior to the report advancing to the May 7, 2019 Urban Planning Committee meeting (item 6.1).

Parking Trade-offs and Outcomes Survey
The City conducted a survey about the trade-offs and priorities around parking, as well as who should be responsible for making decisions about how much on-site parking is provided with new homes and businesses.
In addition to an 800-person phone survey, an online version of the survey was open for feedback between Wednesday October 17, 2018 and Monday November 19, 2018. The survey results outline Edmontonians values and priorities related to parking.
Engage Edmonton Events
Edmontonians were invited to share their voices and help shape our city by attending one of the family-friendly Engage Edmonton drop in events, which ran from Thursday October 11 to Thursday November 15, 2018. The feedback from these events is being reviewed and the results of the engagement will be shared in a council report in the first half of 2019.
