The Historic Downtown area faces a variety of parking pressures on specific days of the week and at specific times of the day. As the area continues to evolve and attract more development, businesses, customers, and visitors, the pressure to accommodate more people will be even greater.

In light of these parking and development pressures, the City of Abbotsford is conducting a comprehensive parking study in the Historic Downtown area of the City to understand overall parking concerns.

BACKGROUND:
The Abbotsford Historic Downtown Parking Study seeks to understand existing and future needs for parking and develop a strategic management plan to enable the City to manage the transportation needs associated with its future growth over the next 10 years as envisioned in the Historic Downtown Neighbourhood Plan (HDNP). The project is being completed over two stages, which began in July 2019 with completion planned for early 2020.

An online survey and stakeholder engagement was conducted in 2019 to gain valuable insight into the parking challenges and viewpoints from residents, businesses and stakeholders. View the survey responses here.

The City of Abbotsford has hired Watt Consulting Group—a transportation and engineering firm based in Vancouver—to undertake the study.
