The City of Ottawa is considering implementing a pilot “Park and Cycle” Project at 2805 Carling Avenue.
Park and Cycle refers to a multi-modal trip where the beginning of the trip is by a car that is parked for the day at an appropriate parking location and the trip is continued by bicycle.
Subject to Council approval and temporary rezoning, the City of Ottawa is considering implementing a 3-year pilot project to designate a portion of the existing parking spaces at 2805 Carling Avenue, the gravel parking lot beside Baseball Diamond 2 in the upper tier of Britannia Park, for “Park & Cycle” use.
This change would offer a legal parking space to residents wishing to drive for part of their trip, park their car for the day and continue their trip by bicycle.
Your comments and feedback on this potential Park & Cycle Pilot Project are welcome.
With Council approval, the current plan for the Park & Cycle Pilot Project includes the following:
Timing and logistics: In the spring of 2020, the City would install signs in the parking lot designating 10 spaces for Park & Cycle use on weekdays during the day (e.g. From 6am to 6pm). The remaining 40 spaces in the parking lot would continue to be available for regular use. By-law Services would enforce parking restrictions.
- Transportation Committee will receive the results of the Park & Cycle review and staff’s recommendation for the Park & Cycle Pilot Project at the April 3rd, 2019 meeting.
- If Transportation Committee approves the Pilot Project, Committee will make recommendation(s) to Council at the April 24th, 2019 meeting.
