Achieving a Vision for Miramichi

“The purpose of the Parking Study and Strategic Plan is to explore all aspects of how parking is, or is not, meeting the
needs of Miramichi’s residents, businesses, visitors and municipal government now and in the future. In this
evaluation, focus will be given to several current issues:

• The City’s role in ownership, operation, planning and regulation of parking
• The value and impact of implementing paid parking in the downtowns
• The opportunities available for optimal introduction of paid parking using new technologies
• The role of parking supply and utilization as tool in economic and municipal development and management
• The best way to manage parking demand in residential neighbourhoods

An understanding of the parking-related needs and aspirations of residents and businesses will be gained through
interviews with key stakeholders and engagement with the community. “
