The City installs accessible parking zones on public property in front of residences and businesses. Parking zones are typically 7.5-10m long, which accommodates one vehicle. Anyone displaying a valid Province of Alberta accessible parking placard can use a accessible parking zone. It is not designated for use by a single person or property.
To request a accessible parking zone, you must meet at least one of the following requirements:
- Have a valid accessible parking placard from the Province of Alberta. Visit Service Alberta to apply for a accessible parking placard.
- Be registered with the Disabled Adults Transportation System (DATS). For more information, visit DATS.
To request a accessible parking zone in front of your home, call 311. If you are not the property owner, you must provide written permission from the owner. There is no charge to install a accessible parking zone in front of a residence.
Note: The City will not install a parking zone if your residence has a driveway leading to the street.
Property owners/managers for businesses, institutions and apartment complexes must submit a written request for a accessible parking zone to the City. Please include the address for the parking zone in the request. Businesses will be charged a fee for this service.
The City does not provide accessible parking zones on private property. Contact the property owner to request accessible parking.
