Parking wars on Beaverbrooke Street

Oak Bay council directed municipal staff to work with residents, the school and parents on a solution

A request to change Beaverbrooke Street into resident-only parking by St. Michaels University Junior School has been turned down.

Instead, Oak Bay council directed municipal staff to work with residents, the school and parents on a solution, as granting the request would have pushed the problem to the another street.

According to a staff report, issues regarding parking have at times escalated to where police involvement “was almost required.”

Common complaints include parents parking their vehicles too close to driveways, sometimes blocking them during drop-off and pick-up hours at the school.

The school currently has about 175 students with plans to redevelop and increase the student population to 210 in the next few years.
