(January 23, 1998) From the Commissioner, Operations Services
Councillor Joe Mihevc, Ward 28, York Eglinton, is requesting the feasibility of implementing on-street permit parking on Graham Gardens.
Funding Sources, Financial Implications and Impact Statement:
Traffic budget. Implementation of on-street permit parking on Graham Gardens could provide a potential annual revenue of $600.00.
Subject to the Director of Council Services and City Clerk=s poll revealing the majority of residents are in favour, York Community Council approve the implementation of on-street permit parking on Graham Gardens.
Internal memo, dated October 16, 1996, from Councillor Joe Mihevc, Ward 28, York Eglinton, to Stephen Brown, Manager Traffic/Parking.
Comments and/or Discussion and/or Justification:
Graham Gardens traverses in an east/west direction, running off Atlas Avenue to its easterly terminus.
Currently on-street parking is legally permitted on the north side, exclusively, with a maximum unsigned three (3) hour parking regulation anytime.
Field surveys reveal there is a total complement of ten (10) curbside parking spaces available on the north side of Graham Gardens.
On-street permit parking provides those residents, without adequate off-street parking facilities to legally park their vehicles on the streets on which they reside for extended periods of time, with impunity from the signed or unsigned parking regulations. We, therefore, support the introduction of on-street permit parking on Graham Gardens.
On-street permit parking is a service benefit for every municipally addressed taxpayer without adequate off-street parking facilities. We, therefore, recommend the implementation of on-street permit parking on Graham Gardens.
