The City of Markham is growing rapidly. Over the past 20 years, the population has gone up from 208,000 residents to more than 353,000. It’s important to understand how residents travel into and out of the city. Parking is a big part of Markham’s transportation network. It impacts our community, such as how people travel, where development occurs, affordability, land use and more.


Background

The City of Markham’s Official Plan and the 2020-2023 Strategic Plan - Building Markham’s Future Together, sets out goals relating to the environment, housing affordability and transportation. Parking plays a key role in achieving those goals.

Markham is made up of unique areas, and not all of them have the same transportation or parking needs. Our Citywide Parking Strategy will look at all these differences while working to meet our strategic goals.

What is a Parking Strategy?

A Citywide Parking Strategy is a document that brings together City requirements or recommendations related to the management of a parking system.

The City of Markham is developing a Citywide Parking Strategy to align with the goals of the City’s Strategic Plan relating to parking and its associated relationship with the natural environment, land use planning and the City’s transportation system. The City is seeking public and stakeholder feedback to create a vision for parking in the City, to assess the current parking conditions and prepare a set of recommendations for City Council consideration in 2024. The goal is to improve t the overall parking experience for our residents and visitors.


The Strategy will:

  • Review current parking conditions in the City. This includes programs, infrastructure and policies that tell us how and when parking spaces are used.
  • Investigate the availability, sustainability, technology, financial and operations of parking.
  • Study how parking impacts the use of transit, walking and cycling.
  • Give recommendations and direction on how these findings can be put into practice.
