    The City of Calgary (pop.750,000) is currently reviewing short stay parking policy fin the Downtown Core.

    Short Term Parking Policy

    One solution is to install two hour, or time limited parking meters. Another solution can be found in the City of Saratoga Springs, NY. The City removed all of their parking meters and posted two hour parking signs. They then hired a parking enforcement agent who chalks tires. Enforcement is excellent and the spaces turn over rapidly through out the day.
