Subject:Removal of a Parking Prohibition
To propose the removal of a parking prohibition on the south side of Fima Crescent from
Belvia Road to a point 61.0 metres west thereof.
The funds associated with the installation of the appropriate regulatory signage are contained
in the Transportation Services Division's Operating Budget.
It is recommended that:
(1)the current parking prohibition on the south side of Fima Crescent be amended to allow
on-street parking from Belvia Road to a point 61.0 metres west thereof; and
(2)the appropriate by-law (Attachment No. 1) be amended accordingly.
The Transportation Services Division is in receipt of correspondence from Mr. Donovan
Goss, forwarded on behalf of Robert Awnings and Signs, and Philip Utilities Coromar/Philip
Utilities Uniflow, requesting that the parking prohibition currently in effect on the south side
of Fima Crescent be amended to allow for short term on-street parking (Attachment No. 2). A
map of the area is AttachmentNo. 3.
Fima Crescent is a two-lane roadway with treated shoulders approximately 3.0 metres wide.
Parking is prohibited on the south side of Fima Crescent from Belvia Road to the west limit of
the road. Parking is permitted on the north side of the street for a maximum period of three
hours. Land use in the immediate vicinity is zoned Industrial, Class 2.
Due to the width of the shoulders and the low volume of traffic that utilizes this section of
FimaCrescent, the re-introduction of parking on the south side of Fima Crescent between
BelviaRoad and a point 61.0 metres west thereof, would in no way affect traffic on the
roadway or compromise traffic safety.
Based on the staff examination of this matter, Council's endorsement of the recommendations
contained herein would be appropriate.
