Open House: Downtown Parking Management and Regulations Study


Event Details

  • Date:

As the Town welcomes the significant amount of new development, interest and investment in our downtown core in recent years, it also places some pressure on existing infrastructure and services, such as parking.  In response, the Town partnered with J.L. Richards & Associates in October 2019 to undertake a study that examined the needs of residents, business owners and visitors to identify a “made in Smiths Falls” approach to ensure that parking downtown is efficient, effective and that it functions well for those who need it.

Following the stakeholder consultation in October as well as an online consultation in November, the Town of Smiths Falls is now inviting the Public and Stakeholders to attend another meeting to discuss the findings and preliminary recommendations presented by J.L. Richards regarding parking management in the Downtown Core.  The meeting will include a presentation of the data and findings concerning parking operations and demand as well as recommendations regarding pay for parking options, parking rates, location of accessible parking spaces, zoning provisions for parking and more. Public and Stakeholders will have an opportunity to comment after the presentation.

Through this process we have looked at:
