Establishing a new residential parking permit zone


Residential parking permits

How to establish a new residential parking permit zone

The City is reviewing its Residential Parking Permit program in an effort to improve customer service, long-term financial stability and efficient use of street space. New residential parking permit zone requests will not be considered until this review is complete to ensure that any new zones comply with review outcomes and recommendations.

How to add or change residential parking zone signs

Requests for changes to residential parking signage will not be accepted until January 1, 2022. This decision has been made due to driving and parking pattern changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic stay-at-home recommendations. It also reflects our efforts to focus on critical and essential services.

Residential parking signs can only be installed in existing residential parking zones, and only one parking restriction is permitted per block. The City will only consider requests for changes to existing signs when existing signs have been in place for 18 months or longer. Check the residential parking zone map to see if your location is in an existing residential parking zone.

To make this request, you must complete an official City of Calgary petition for the block in question; 80% agreement from residents on the block must be obtained.
