Residential parking requests denied

Degree of congestion doesn't warrant changes, staff reports

Two requests for parking restrictions were rejected by council at its committee of the whole meeting Monday.

Residents of two homes in the 2600-block of Currie Rd. hoped to have their block designated residential only, given the block’s proximity to Oak Bay Marina, Windsor Park, St. Christopher’s Montessori school and several apartments and businesses.

The other request came from a resident of Woodburn Avenue, who complained about added congestion due to an increasing number of Camosun College and University of Victoria students parking on the street.

Engineering staff visited both sites to gauge the situation and determined that neither warranted a change of rules.
