Commercial District Parking Study

Vision

The Commercial District Parking Study will offer the town a comprehensive look at current parking availability in Downtown Oakville and along Kerr Street. It will also include recommendations for future parking in these two areas.

Summary

The Commercial District Parking Study will review the current parking situation in Downtown Oakville and Kerr Street Village. It will also provide recommendations for future parking opportunities including changes in rates, fees, fines, durations and hours of operations taking into account projected changes in inventory and demand.

The study is led by the town’s Parking Operations. The town currently operates one parking garage (283 spaces) and 12 surface lots (513 spaces) in Downtown Oakville as well as 540 paid on-street parking spaces. The Kerr Street business district has one municipal surface lot (48 spaces) and 180 metered on-street parking spaces.

A survey was completed in December 2012. Results were collected online and at select businesses throughout Downtown Oakville and Kerr Street.

Final report

The Commercial District Parking Study findings and recommendations were presented to the Community Services Committee on December 3, 2013, and approved by Council on December 16, 2013. Review the December 3, 2013, Community Service Committee agenda
