Downtown Parking Strategy

Welcome to the Downtown Parking Strategy project page.

The municipality is undertaking a Downtown Parking Strategy to examine the current and future parking requirements in the downtown areas of Lindsay, Fenelon Falls and Bobcaygeon. As outlined in the Kawartha Lakes Transportation Master Plan, this study will develop solutions to optimize parking in the defined areas.

In the last several years, demand for downtown parking has increased dramatically. In downtown Lindsay, the average rate of use for parking during peak weekday business hours has increased from 61% in 2014 to 81% in 2018. 

Downtown Fenelon FallsBobcaygeon and Fenelon Falls have also seen increased pressure on parking resources. 

Kawartha Lakes is projected to grow to a population of 100,000 by 2031 and the Strategy will help prepare for this growth.

Kawartha Lakes has been gathering public input on expectations and experiences of parking downtown in the current project communities.

Two online surveys were made available between March and August 2019. The surveys have now closed.

An report will be coming to Council following IBI's completion of the consultation strategy. If you have any questions regarding the project, please contact the project lead below.
