Streets in the commercial areas of the City serve many competing interests. Primarily designed for moving traffic; the general public, delivery trucks, taxis and buses all vie for space making the urban street one of the most sought-after resources. Parking enforcement is vital to ensure this resource is used to the maximum benefit of the community.
We Strive to:
- Support the On-Street Parking system by equitably and
consistently enforcing the parking regulations.
- Encourage compliance of the City's parking
- Promote traffic and pedestrian safety.
- Maximize the capacity of the existing parking supply
through increased turnover.
- Protect access needed for commerce and public
convenience; clear freight loading zones of all day commuters to allow
adequate delivery space for commercial businesses; provide for a more
efficient delivery of goods and services.
- Enhance the quality of life in residential neighborhoods
by keeping residential areas free of downtown commuters.
