Calgary’s new residential parking permit rules take effect Monday

It’s not going to cost as much as initially proposed, but the days of free parking passes for people who own houses in the city’s Residential Parking Zones is over.

This includes neighbourhoods like Kensington, Inglewood, and the Beltline.

As of Monday morning, it now costs residents $30 a year for the first parking pass on their street, and the price increases for additional vehicles.

Visitor passes are $45 each.

Previously, ground level dwellings were given two passes for residents and two for visitors.

The accepted fee change was debated down from a more expensive proposal, which saw outcry from Calgarians and criticism from councillors.

When changes were first announced, 15,000 people signed a petition in opposition.

Market, or multi-residential-type homes, have to pay monthly with a different fee structure.
