Smart Parking

Description: Parking standards and strategies play an important role in determining the quality of the built environment in cities and towns of all scales. Currently, many municipalities rely on antiquated parking standards that result in an overabundance of parking at the costs of community character and vitality, an increased “urban heat island effect”, loss of recharge to drinking water supplies, and more polluted runoff. Smart parking approaches can address these issues through a variety of techniques including: tailoring standards, managing demand, and improving parking facility design. This module of the Smart Growth / Smart Energy Toolkit provides an introduction to smart parking, bylaw examples, case studies and a slideshow.
