Resident Exempt Parking Areas
In response to neighbourhood concerns regarding intrusive non-residential on-street parking in the community, the City has formed a Resident Exempt Parking Area (REPA) Policy outlining a process for residents to have their request for a REPA in their neighbourhood evaluated. REPAs are parking strategies implemented in neighbourhoods intended to address heavy demand from nearby high trip generators such as hospitals, community centres, and shopping districts. Upon expression of interest from residents through a resident-led petition, the City will recommend implementing a REPA for Council’s consideration, subject to passing a warrant assessment. To review the procedures and determine how to submit a Letter of Request for a REPA, please review the Resident Exempt Parking Area Policy.
