City changes will affect some Queen's parking permit holders

By Communications Staff

With the City of Kingston introducing changes to municipal on-street parking in the Queen’s area, the Queen’s surface parking permit will no longer be valid for on-street parking along a number of streets. The university is taking steps to minimize the impact on parking permit holders.

Queen’s surface parking passes will no longer be valid for parking on Arch, Barrie and Clergy streets as of July 1. As of October 1, the parking permit will no longer be valid for parking on Albert Street and Queen’s Crescent.

“We recognize that the City’s changes will potentially inconvenience a number of Queen’s parking permit holders, and the university will be creating additional permit spaces to ensure there continues to be sufficient Queen’s parking spaces,” says Donna Stover, Parking Manager.

The City will be adding municipal pay and display parking and introduce resident and commuter on-street parking permits to the area. In response to these changes, Queen’s will convert the parking lot at the corner of Division and Union streets to permit parking as of July 1. Current plans will see the solar house currently on that lot relocated and the lot paved to provide a better facility for permit holders. In addition, the existing pay and display spaces in the parking lot behind Miller Hall will become permit parking.

More information about the parking changes can be found on the Parking Department website, and information about the City’s changes to municipal on-street parking can be found on the City’s website.
