No Action    Motion To: WHEREAS in the Kitchissippi Parking Strategy Report, Staff have completed a Local Area Parking Study (LAPS) for Wellington West and a LAPS Update for Westboro, which is a follow-up to a previous study which was completed in 2013; and WHEREAS the Kitchissippi Parking Strategy encompasses the results of these studies and represents a coordinated approach to identifying parking issues and solutions across the entire area; and WHEREAS staff found that paid parking along the main street (Richmond Road / Wellington Street West / Somerset Street West) is warranted according to the criteria established in the Municipal Parking Management Strategy (MPMS) and its Rate Setting Guidelines, and would align with industry best practices which would also establish consistency with other commercial areas of the City; and WHEREAS Section 14 of Schedule I of the Delegation of Authority By-law, being By-law No. 216-369 requires the local Ward Councillor, Business Improvement Areas, and Community Associations concur with any variation to paid parking; and WHEREAS that concurrence has not been obtained in this instance with reference to the Kitchissippi Parking Strategy Report despite the fact that paid parking has been found to be warranted by staff for this extended main street commercial area according to the MPMS process; and WHEREAS there appears to be an oversight in section 14 of Schedule 1of the Delegation of Authority By-law in that there is no procedural mechanism for Committee and Council to address this situation where there are warrants for paid parking but no concurrence on those required to provide concurrence; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Transportation Committee recommends to Council that staff be directed to review the oversight of the MPMS as part of the End of Term Governance Review for the next term of Council.
