The city of Brampton needs feedback from residents for its first-ever citywide parking plan review.

As the city continues to grow, Brampton is reviewing its parking strategy to identify the future needs of residents and businesses, while also improving infrastructure planning.

“Parking requirements have an impact on affordable housing, development costs and land use planning,” the city said in a release.

Feedback on the parking plan from the community will help develop “complete, healthy, walkable communities” while ensuring the needs and safety of all road users are considered.

The parking plan will be developed in two parts.

Phase one will review links between parking issues and the city’s economic, social and environmental goals, while the second phase will review recommendations for a business and financial parking model.

Residents and stakeholders – including businesses, not-for-profit groups, and the taxi and trucking industries – are invited to an online engagement session on Thursday, Jan. 13 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. to learn more about the study and provide feedback.

Online surveys will also be available until January 28.

Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown said stakeholder engagement will help the city “understand how our roads are currently being used and how we can best plan for the future.

To register for the event, complete the survey and learn more, visit brampton.ca/parkingplan.

The city said it has enlisted IBI Group to help support the parking strategy, which will align with other current strategies including Brampton Plan and Housing Brampton.
