As part of the Downtown Parking Plan Update, the City of Whitehorse and Stantec Consulting Ltd. conducted parking counts and field surveys during the month of January. The field surveys consisted of a review of on-street parking, off-street parking lots, and overall Downtown mobility to get an idea on how Downtown parking is functioning. This will provide such information as:
- how many parking stalls are being occupied during the course of the day (on a block-by-block basis);
- how long are vehicles parking for;
- what specific areas are experiencing more or less parking demand; and
- what times of the work day are experiencing more or less parking demand.
The Bylaw Services Department’s License Plate Recognition Vehicle (e.g. the white SUV) was utilized as part of the surveys. Any questions regarding the purpose of the surveys can be directed to Ben Campbell, project manager, at the contact information below.
