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

The Planning Dept. is looking for information on short-stay parking policies that attempt to ensure short-stay parking is used for retail/personal business trips and not for commuting (i.e. long-stay) parking.

If you have any info please pass it on to
jfrancis@gov.calgary.ab.ca.

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.
