City Says ‘No’ To Parking Meter Removal In Walkerville

A request to remove parking meters in the Walkerville shopping district is being reccommended to be ‘denied’ by City of Windsor administrators.

The Walkerville BIA made the request to remove the meters — and offer free parking for a maximum of two hours — in a motion put forth by the BIA’s board of directors last year at this time.

John Wolf, the City of Windsor’s Director of Traffic Operations, said in a report to the City’s Transportation Committee that meters in the Wyandotte BIA generate around $500 a week, a substantial amount which is used to pay for parking lot repairs and other capital expenditures.

Wolf cites in the report that on-street meters are part of a ‘self-funding program’ where if removed, would require funding to come from taxes for repairs to off-street lots.

The matter of removing meters on Wyandotte goes before the City of Windsor’s Environment & Transportation Standing Committee on November 28th for a decision by committee members.
