Subject:Atlantic Avenue, between Liberty Street and the C.N.R. right-of-way - Parking Regulations (Trinity-Niagara,
This proposal is intended to increase parking availability for the customers of businesses in the area.
Funding Sources, Financial Implications and Impact Statement:
Funds to undertake the necessary signage adjustments in the estimated amount of $600.00 are contained in the
Transportation Services Division 1999 Current Budget request.
- That the "No Parking Anytime" regulation on the east side of Atlantic Avenue between Liberty Street and the C.N.R.
right-of-way, be rescinded;
2.That parking be prohibited at anytime on the west side of Atlantic Avenue between Liberty Street and the C.N.R.
3. That the appropriate City Officials be requested to take whatever action is necessary to give effect to the foregoing,
including the introduction in Council of any Bills that may be required.
At the request of the owner of the Liberty Street Cafe, Premises No. 25 Liberty Street and in consultation with
Trinity-Niagara Councillors Joe Pantalone and Mario Silva, Transportation Services staff have investigated the feasibility
of relocating parking from the west side of Atlantic Avenue between Liberty Street and the C.N.R. right-of-way to the east
side in order to increase on-street parking availability for the patrons of local businesses.
Parking demand in the immediate area has increased due to new and expanding businesses. There are currently eighteen
parking spaces on the west side of Atlantic Avenue between Liberty Street and the C.N.R. right-of-way and a potential of
thirty-four parking spaces on the east side. Parking is currently permitted to a maximum period of three hours on the west
side and prohibited anytime on the east side.
Relocating parking from the west side to the east side will increase available on-street parking spaces by sixteen, enhancing
parking opportunity on this street.
Implementation of this proposal will not adversely affect operational safety on the subject section of Atlantic Avenue.
