Without public transit, it's expected that every adult in a household will own a car. And as adult children stay longer home a 4 car allowance should be the norm. And on top suitable provisioning for temporary visitor parking should be allowed.

It can be really difficult. I believe that new development should never consider reduced parking numbers.There is a house where I live where the home owner was allowing the third car to park on the lawn. Last night it was across the driveway below the side walk. i find in the winter there can be a problem with company....especially if the company is from out of town during holiday time.

The town over reacted by putting a no parking sign in front of my house after 53 years of not having a no parking sign.They did this based on one complaint.Completely unjustified and irrational

With adult children now living at home longer the need for more street parking is essential. Some families may have up to five or more drivers with vehicles at one house.Population demographics change, the parking laws have to change to suit this new paradigm.

I don’t see how the town can give tickets to people who simply do not have enough parking to accommodate a entire family. Kids are staying home longer because they simply can’t afford to buy anything in this region of halton. Then you give tickets when the town makes people struggle even more. The town of halton hills staff are clearly not able to see common sense.

My house does not even have parking! Where am I supposed to Park legally in Town? It seems like I have to struggle with the town to potentially get a variance to Zoning to even allow me to put in a driveway. All at my cost potentially. What is the town willing to do, to assist my family?

Parking would not be a significant issue if new detached residential homes were built with driveways wide and long enough to accommodate a minimum 4 cars with or without a sidewalk present. Semi-detached and townhomes should have drive ways with minimum allowance for two car spaces each.In addition in each subdivision the streets should be designed wider to accommodate guest/visitors street parking curb side temporarily in front of homes and still be wide enough to allow emergency vehicles and snow plowing to pass safely.Bike lanes are barely even used in our town! They take up valuable vehicle space, stick with multi lane pathways for walking, biking, blading etc as done on Main Street/8th line, keeping kids safely off the roads.Rear laneway town homes should not be built! They are a nightmare for service vehicles and parking!Over the years I have seen developers make subdivision roads narrower, and front lawns almost non existent, homes are being crammed onto tiny lots with small driveways. Front lawns are removed and paved! See Vaughan for example. Horrible for the environment as no trees a planted on front lawns.The issue is developers cramming homes onto vacant lands to make as much money as possible. The houses are pushed up towards the street, the new homes front yards are tiny and their porches are practically on the street. Townhouses are being stacked three stories high on narrow lots not wide enough to have a visitor park in front of their home. People then complain about noise from neighbours, or their bright lights, it does not create the communal feel the developers try to sell us. We need some space and privacy, a place to go after a long days work to get some rest and quiet.Lots should be larger and homes pushed further back from roadways, which offer better safety, privacy for home owners, less pollution, and longer driveways with more parking. With more and more people getting online deliveries the roadways will only get worse! There are, UPS or Fedex vehicles parked on streets daily! You need to stop cramming homes together!!! This is Canada not New York City, we have vacant lands being developed here!

Brings Halton Hills parking bylaws back in line with the POA, and such bylaws shall meet the AODA standard.

I am seeing more and more vehicles parked across sidewalks. This causes vision impaired persons, those with mobility issues and others to have to walk around these obstacles. Homeowners whose property abuts a sidewalk should be made aware of this. I do not know if this practice is prohibited by a By-Law
