The City of Hamilton has announced some major changes to parking in the City.

According to Chief Operating Officer and Secretary to the City of Hamilton, Mr. Edward Benevides, “Starting on Monday November 1, 2010, if a business has a commercial vehicle that travels to, and parks on Hamilton streets, they will be impacted.

All vehicles that park in a loading bay must display a parking voucher or Easy Pay meter and can park in the space for up to one hour but only if it is actively loading and unloading.

“Only goods vehicles are legally allowed to park in a loading zone. All commercial vehicles should park in a regular parking space.”

Mr. Benevides continued, “If a goods vehicle is not loading or unloading it must use a regular parking space and display a parking voucher or us an Easy Park meter.

For those organizations with commercial vehicles requiring more than one hour of parking, in order to complete a job, business owners can buy a permit which exempts the vehicle from the one hour parking restriction in car parking bays.”

Mr. Benevides stated, “Another parking change involves parking on Reid Street. Last November, we adopted a policy of no car parking along the entire length of Reid Street between 8:00am and 10:00am.

“This restriction allowed for the faster flow of traffic into Hamilton during the early morning commute.”
