Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost to have an on-street accessible parking stall installed?

There is no applicant cost for the installation and maintenance of the accessible parking stall. In cases where passenger side-entry of the applicant’s vehicle is required, the sidewalk or boulevard in front of the proposed accessible parking stall should be unobstructed or mitigated for access at the cost of the home owner prior to installation of the accessible parking stall.

Is the City required to provide on-street accessible parking?

The City is not legally required to provide on-street accessible parking spaces for persons with disabilities. The City has the sole discretion to approve or deny any applications.

What is the Installation Criteria for an accessible parking stall?

The following criterion is used in evaluating applications. If a resident with disabilities demonstrates eligibility for the City to install an accessible parking stall by satisfying the criteria set forth below, the City will make an effort to offer an accessible parking stall. The information must be provided by or demonstrated by the applicant:

• Proof of Residency

• Proof of Permanent Disability and Possession of a Disability Placard

• Existing Parking Restrictions

• On Site Parking Evaluation

The City also takes into consideration the following elements to ensure that no significant impacts may result from the installation of an accessible parking stall:

• Existing Parking Restrictions: Existing parking or regulatory restrictions that prohibit parking in front of the applicant’s residence will be evaluated on the ability to accommodate an accessible parking stall.

• Parking Demand: The existing on-street parking demand will be evaluated by the City. There should be no other existing accessible parking stalls within 150 meters of the proposed location.

• Roadway Safety: No unusual roadway characteristics should be present that may impact roadway operations or entry/exit from the driver side of the applicant’s vehicle, such as curves in the roadway or pavement failures.

• On-Site Parking Evaluation: The City will look at the ability to have accessible parking on the resident's property.

 How do I get a disability placard?

In Alberta, disability placards are managed by Service Alberta, and are generally distributed to individuals who are unable to walk unassisted for more than 50 metres, and who need larger stalls to load and unload devices such as walkers and wheelchairs with unobstructed access to the curb.
