The parking plan includes:
- a mix of existing and new parking regulations for residential and commercial districts based on time limits;
- the installation of clear parking signs at key points along affected streets; and
- increased Bylaw Enforcement patrols.
The Evergreen Extension Parking Plan is a pilot program. City staff may recommend future adjustments based on transit usage, bylaw enforcement tracking, and community feedback.

Time limits are used to prevent all-day parking and encourage turnover so people can access businesses, civic facilities, public parks, and residential areas.
Commercial areas east of Moody Street: Daytime (9am-5pm) parking will be restricted to four hours, Monday through Saturday.
Commercial areas west of Moody Street will have the following restrictions:
- Clarke Street and St. Johns Street, two-hour parking (9am-6pm), Monday to Saturday;
- Spring Street, four-hour parking (9am-5pm), Monday to Friday;
- Moody Street, Grant Street, Mary Street, and Kyle Street (boundaries are Clarke Street to the north and St. George Street to the south), four-hour parking (9am-5pm), Monday to Friday; and
- Queens Street, one-hour parking (9am-5pm), seven days a week.
Single-family (detached homes): Parking will be restricted to three hours adjacent to single-family dwellings. This restriction does not apply to residents parked in front of their own property. This is an existing bylaw.
Multi-family (townhomes/condos): Parking will be limited to four hours, Monday to Friday, daytime (9am–5pm) adjacent to multi-family dwellings and public park areas, except with a multi-family residential permit. Parking in these areas was previously unregulated.
The parking plan makes use of an existing City bylaw (Street, Traffic and Public Places Bylaw No. 1528, Section 6.3.5) for residential streets, which states that no one is permitted to park a vehicle in front of another person’s property for more than three hours.
If an unknown vehicle is parked in front of your home, you can file a complaint with Bylaw Enforcement. Parking complaints can be filed online, over the phone (604-469-4697), or via email.
