Passed    Motion To: Moved by / Motion de: Councillor R. Brockington Seconded by / Appuyée par: Councillor S. Qadri That the Rules of Procedure be suspended to consider the following motion, to avoid further delay in the implementation and as the Ward Councillor cannot attend the July 11 Council meeting. WHEREAS Viscount Avenue is situated across from the Royal Ottawa Hospital, and despite the implementation of a “No Parking” designation in 2017, local residents continue to express safety concerns and continue to witness hospital staff parking on this street on a daily and long term basis, including those whose vehicles display Accessible Parking Permits and remain parked for greater than the permitted four-hour time limit; and WHERAS residents are requesting that the existing No Parking designation on the west side of Viscount Avenue from Carling Avenue to the first private laneway approximately 38 metres south of Carling Avenue be changed to a No Stopping designation; and WHEREAS, further to the On-Street Parking Regulation Change Policy approved by Council on April 12, 2017, unlike other changes to on street parking designations, community requests for the installation of No Stopping designations cannot be approved by Traffic Services under delegated authority given the implications to parking availability for those with Accessible Parking Permits; and WHEREAS the Ward Councillor sought input from the City’s Accessibility Advisory Committee on the proposed change, given that the change to a No Stopping regulation would reduce accessible parking spaces on Viscount Avenue by four; and WHEREAS, at its meeting of June 19, 2018, the Accessibility Advisory Committee supported the Ward Councillor’s request for a No Stopping designation on Viscount Avenue, and requested that the Ward Councillor work with hospital staff to find a solution to replace the affected four parking spots; and WHEREAS off-street accessible parking is available for staff and visitors at the Royal Ottawa Hospital, and the Ward Councillor is willing to work with hospital staff to find solutions; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Council approve the implementation of “No Stopping” designations on the west side of Viscount Avenue from Carling Avenue to a point 38 metres south of Carling Avenue.
