Everything You Need to Know About the Parking Pilot Project in Bronte Village
Back in May of this year, inhalton published an article about a two-year pilot commercial parking program that recently came into effect in the Bronte Village area in Oakville.
The program officially launched last month (June 2019).
And the town of Oakville recently announced, via Twitter, that over the next little while meters and parking machines will be going up in Bronte as part of the program.
“Paid parking helps ensure spaces become available more often for customers of the nearby shops and businesses,” reads the town’s Twitter post.
Here’s everything residents and visitors need to know about the program.
According to the town’s website, paid parking will be available at spaces alongside storefronts in Bronte Village on main and secondary streets, and at the town-owned spaces at Bronte Village Mall. In addition, as noted by the town, two hour-visitor parking will be in effect on residential streets adjacent to commercial shopping areas.
“Paid parking will be available through parking meters, pay-by-plate machines, monthly permits and the Honk mobile payment app,” reads the town’s website. “Enforcement patrols will also be in place to help ensure turnover.”
The town’s website continued to explain the parking rates.
“Rates are $1.50 per hour and $0.25 in 20-minute quick stop spaces (free after 6 p.m. and on Sundays and holidays),” reads the town’s website. “All-day (nine-hour) parking is available on Ontario Street for $7 per day or $39.55 for [a] monthly permit.”

The program, as noted in the previous article, is a result of residents, business owners, and commercial property owners raising concerns about visitors parking for extended periods of time in the commercial district.
Staff, according to the town’s website, will review parking on an ongoing basis, reporting back to council in 2021.
Fees collected from the program will go towards funding future parking resources.
