The City of Vancouver is putting forward a proposal to require permit parking in all residential neighbourhoods. There’s a survey open on the City’s website until February 28th. Do you think this is the right move to make as part of the City’s Climate Emergency Action Plan? Or is it a cash grab that punishes people who are not eligible for parking off streets and require a vehicle? Or is there a more nuanced approach that the City could take? Or are the proposed changes not going far enough? In any event, this item is one that will garner a lot of attention in the upcoming months.
The post on the City’s website ends with the words “before going to Council for approval in July” and it notes that the cheapest residential parking that the City sells is currently $45.45 per year.
