Parking at 4 Rosemount could become TPA lot

The Toronto Parking Authority is asking permission to make the parking lot at 4 Rosemount a city pay-and-display lot for the next year, with  fees of $1 an hour or $5 for 12 hours. Revenue will be split between the city and the lot’s owners.

 Anecdotally, your correspondent has found that lot to be quite busy, though whether that is from traffic to the local businesses or from overflow parking for the train station, I couldn’t say.

Making the lot paid-for may have the undesirable effect of spilling parked cars out onto nearby streets. The TPA says that “certain on-street parking restrictions [should] also be implemented.”

The city is asking for a pilot, which, if successful after 12 months, could be extended.
