This webinar was started by the ITE PSC due to interest from the ITE community into minimum parking requirements that many municipalities have in their bylaws, standards and guidelines. There has been a desire by many municipalities to increase the use of other modes of transportation rather than single occupancy vehicles, but parking requirements for vehicles have remained due to the need to meet minimum values. The result is that parking areas are still being planned for single occupancy vehicles to some degree, and not for the desired larger share of other modes of transportation. It also means that if the parking demand for land uses listed in the bylaw are not suitable for a given area, or are perhaps antiquated due to infrequent bylaw updates, that parking must be provided at a minimum rate regardless. In response to this, many municipalities have conducted reviews of their bylaws including the need for parking minimums; this study will discuss the process several municipalities have gone through to change their bylaws and what recommendations were made with regards to their minimum parking requirements.

This webinar will look into whether parking minimums are still relevant, should they be revised, or do they need to remain. The scope of work will be focused on the parking minimums for single occupancy vehicles, but will also mention parking needs for other modes of transportation as strategies for potentially reducing the need for parking for vehicles.
