Douglas Avenue Getting New Parking System

Douglas Avenue's parking system will be revamped.

City giving the nod to a recommendation by staff, who say this system would create more on-street parking spaces and be more consistent, but at the cost of reduced snow-clearing service.

Deputy Mayor Shelley Rinehart says she wants to be sure the right balance is being struck so they don't have to return to the issue. Traffic Engineer Timothy O'Reilly saying they wouldn't make the recommendation if they didn't believe that and they're trying to put this issue to bed.

Councillor Donna Reardon saying roads will always be in flux and parking will always be a conundrum, so this is the best answer for now.
