The 2011 Whitehorse Downtown Parking Management Plan (“the Plan”) contains a 10-year implementation program to ensure Downtown parking is used more efficiently and to reduce overall parking demand through Transportation Demand Management (TDM) initiatives. The implementation items were broken into four major categories:
Off-Street Parking; and
Overall, 35 recommendations were included in the implementation program. Since adoption of the Plan in 2011, almost all immediate, short, and medium term items are completed. Some long-range recommendations are either underway or remain as they have proven to be complex and potentially contentious with the public. The City has tracked the progress of implementation in the attached table found in Appendix B.
One of the recommendations is to conduct a 5-year review of the Plan to “update conditions, track progress, and reconfirm priorities as needed.” This review is now 1-year overdue. The population of Whitehorse has continued to grow (Yukon Bureau of Statistics reports), and the most recent Retail Market Strategy (2016) notes high Downtown growth rates in numerous market sectors as well as the increased redevelopment of Downtown properties for multiple housing. During recent public engagement processes, Downtown parking continues to be top of mind for many businesses, community organizations, and the public.
The primary objective of this update is to review the Plan and confirm key parking-related actions for the upcoming years (i.e. 2018-2028) based on new information and analysis.
