Mission Parking Pilot

The City of Calgary is partnering with the Calgary Parking Authority (CPA) to pilot a series of on-street parking initiatives in the community of Mission. In October 2016, new hybrid on-street parking zones were introduced on specific streets adjacent to 4 Street SW. We’re now gathering public feedback on these new parking zones.

About the pilot

The Mission parking pilot study explores how different parking arrangements may help to improve parking availability on side streets along 4 Street SW.

The goal of the pilot study is to identify appropriate parking arrangements that balance the parking needs of area residents (permit holders) and area visitors. The pilot study is expected to continue until the end of 2017.

We want to hear from you!

If you live, work, or otherwise visit this area and park on the streets specified in the pilot study, your feedback is important. Please complete this survey by Sunday, June 25, 2017.

Parking data and survey responses will be used to inform The City’s residential parking policies which, if approved, may be applied to other areas in Calgary.

Where we’re at

We are currently monitoring and evaluating the new hybrid on-street parking zones that were introduced in October 2016. The new parking zones allow residents with parking permits to park for free for as long as they like, while visitors to the area can park with payment.

The new hybrid parking zones were previously free 2-hour parking zones for the general public. The new zones encourage people who visit businesses along 4 Street SW to first seek parking along 4 Street SW, thereby improving parking availability along adjacent side streets.
