Thanks to the efforts of tenants in Toronto, a prohibition on visitor parking charges has been passed by Toronto City Council.
The motion, which is part of the City's Harmonized Zoning Bylaw, will "reinstate the prohibition on paid visitor parking in multi-residential/apartment buildings" and will "set up a working group of tenants and landlords to consider how to address instances of abuse at visitor parking lots by methods other than charging for access".
The tireless work of Tenant Associations was key to the return of this provision. Big thanks to the Upper Canada Court Tenant Association who presented and contacted numerous folks connected with the issue. The Brentwood Towers TA, Morningside TA, and ThornCliffe Park Drive TA, were also heavily involved.
