Edmonton removing several resident-only parking zones

The City of Edmonton is looking to remove several resident-only parking zones in the city.

This comes as the city’s urban planning committee voted in favour of these changes, which include replacing residential parking with two-hour parking, paid e-parking, or even free parking.

Replacements are expected in the following neighbourhoods:

  • Belgravia
  • Belvedere
  • Boyle Street
  • Central McDougall
  • Century Park
  • Glengarry
  • Groat Estates
  • Holyrood
  • McKernan
  • Northlands
  • Oliver
  • Parkallen
  • Rossdale
  • Royal Gardens
  • Southgate

There will also be reductions for resident-only parking at Commonwealth stadium, NAIT, Garneau, and Windsor Park.

For places that will retain their residential parking areas, residents will be required to pay $120 every year to keep their permits. However, the city is also working to make provision for people with lower incomes.

The goal of these changes would be to help make parking more available in Edmonton, with the residential parking program being first introduced around 50 years ago.
