The city of Winnipeg is launching a pilot project to make it easier for Winnipeggers to understand parking signs.
The concept is to improve the readability of parking signage by using a colour-coded timetable that outlines all of the restrictions in effect for surrounding parking spaces. During the pilot the new signs will be placed alongside existing signs.
The pilot begin this week in parts of the Exchange District along Bannatyne, King and Arthur.
“This is a great pilot project to make it easier for people to understand the fluctuating parking requirements in the Exchange District,” said Vivian Santos, Councillor for Point Douglas. “We’ve heard from businesses that parking can be a barrier to visit the neighbourhood. These new guides, which incorporate universal design standards, will help address this challenge and communicate the parking requirements more clearly.”
As part of the pilot project the city is looking for feedback until July 31, 2021. They want to know whether the parking guide design is an improvement for those visiting the pilot area.
To provide feedback you will be able to scan a QR code on the new parking signs or contact 311.
