As per the June 2022 Council direction, the City of Waterloo will be installing pavement markings within the Northdale Neighbourhood. This planned work will include painting on-street parking stalls and loading spaces on the following streets:

  • Balsam Street
  • Batavia Place
  • Fir Street
  • Hemlock Street
  • Hickory Street
  • Lester Street
  • State Street

Our contractor, Guild Electric will be carrying out the pre-marking and paint works on behalf of the City of Waterloo. The work will be completed overnight, over July and August 2023.

There will be some disruptions to on-street parking availability as we move through the neighbourhood. There will be no parking on the road for 2 days in each area while the painting is being completed. Please watch for “Emergency No Parking” signs to show where we will be each night. Be aware that vehicles parked these areas run the risk of getting a ticket or being towed.

    Why only this area...How many other residential streets in the city have paid parking?. There are permanent residents of this area who are not students and who are being impacted by this decision and who we feel the City of Waterloo do not care about. Maybe the city should consider a few less high rise building permits in order to help address this and not burden full time residents.

    Thank you for your question.  If Council were to approve paid on-street parking in Northdale, this area would be the first on-street paid parking in Waterloo. The Northdale Land Use and Community Improvement Plan Study set a sustainable vision for the neighbourhood integrated with pedestrian, cycling and transit networks. Paid parking is being considered in this area to encourage sustainable transportation in line with this vision.

    Adding more parking, paid or not, needs to be viewed through a climate lense, and a long term outlook on the regions goals. Are their plans to assess how this will impact land use and subsequent housing density, air quality, greenhouse gases, and comfort of pedestrians and cyclists in the area? Are their alternative proposals in place to see how we could prioritize mode shifting, so it is easier or even preferable to get to this area by public transit, or active transportation? The protected bike lane on Albert has been unusable all winter due to no attempt at snow clearing. This is a primary route into the area for cyclists. This also impacts the need for parking, since the lack of maintenance shifts peoples mode into cars, instead of out of them (for example).

    Thank you for your questions. The proposed Northdale parking project will not add any additional parking to the area. We are asking for feedback on an option to shift all of the existing on-street parking in this neighbourhood to a paid parking model. The parking spaces indicated on the proposal are all the current legal parking spaces available. This shift is being proposed as an option to encourage visitors to the area to use alternate forms of transportation, with surplus funds directed toward supporting sustainable transportation initiatives.
