On-street parking is changing in the Inner Harbour area
August 10, 2017 -
New time-of-day restrictions go into effect on a number of Inner Harbour streets as of Sept. 1. On-street parking will not be allowed from 10 to 11 a.m. and from 2 to 3 p.m. on weekdays to help balance the long-term and short-term parking demands in this area. You don't need a permit if you can park according to these time-of-use restrictions in this area bordered by:
- Queen, Division and Raglan above Sydenham Street
- Bay, Sydenham and Raglan above Montreal Street
- Bay, James and Wellington below Montreal Street
"This is a high-demand area for parking and this change is about managing that demand in a way that balances the needs of area residents, visitors to Rideaucrest Home, Providence Manor and commuters," says Kim Leonard, manager parking operations. "This area is well-served by Kingston Transit on a route that has a Park & Ride."
A limited number of on-street parking permits for commuters will be offered in the area – Inner Harbour Neighbourhood (Area C) – for $83.25 a month. Residents of the area will be offered on-street permits for $25 a month (or $12 a month for those who do not have on-site parking). Go to www.CityofKingston.ca/Parking to find out more and add your name to the permit wait-list.
Leonard notes that this approach to on-street parking is working well in the other high-demand residential areas of Kingston where it has been implemented, including Williamsville and in the areas south of downtown to just west of Queen's University.
