Understanding How Context, Travel Options and Other Variables Influence Parking Demand
In 2018 the City of Victoria adopted a new “Schedule C” to the Zoning Bylaw that regulates the supply and design of off-street parking. The review process centred on an extensive local data collection and analysis process that captured parking demand characteristics for multi-family residential (6,000+ units), office, retail, restaurant and hotel land uses. Supplemented by a scan of regulations in other Canadian communities and research / best practices, this information was used to understand how factors such as location (downtown, urban, other), unit size, tenure (owned, rented, subsidized), proximity to frequent transit service, and other variables influence parking demand.
The key findings from the Victoria review, as well as from recent parking bylaw updates in Nanaimo and Vancouver, will be the basis for this presentation. The presentation will describe how variables such as context, location, unit size, tenure and proximity to frequent transit influence parking demand to give local professionals an understanding of how to determine appropriate site-specific parking supply and inspiration for updating parking standards to better reflect actual need.
Dan Casey is a Transportation Planner in Urban Systems’ Victoria office with 12+ years of experience in multi-modal transportation planning focused in parking management / parking studies, transportation demand management, active transportation, streetscape and conceptual design, and transportation planning as part of broader community planning assignments.
