City moves to limit parking on Dunlop to permit curbside pickup for downtown businesses

Changes to parking rules on Dunlop Street will make it easier for downtown businesses and their customers to take advantage of curbside pickups, says the City.
Effective today (May 12), the City is temporarily designating all on-street parking spaces along Dunlop, from Poyntz to Toronto Streets, as loading zones only. This change limits parking to standing for 10 minutes or less and will help maintain traffic flow in the area. The change is in effect until further notice.
On May 6, the Province announced that all retail stores with a street entrance can provide curbside pickup and delivery as of Monday, May 11. Businesses must continue to follow the City’s COVID-19 Emergency Measures Bylaw and ensure all customers maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from anyone outside of their business while conducting pickups. Businesses are encouraged to review the Province’s workplace safety guidelines at
Residents are reminded that the following parking and traffic impacts are in effect due to the Dunlop Street construction project:
• Mulcaster Street to Owen Street is open to local traffic only and vehicles will have to complete a three-point turn to get out.
• There is no vehicle access or parking available on Dunlop from Maple to Mary streets, and from Owen to Clapperton Street.
• Two-hour free parking is available at the Chase McEachern Way (including 15 Bayfield Street lot) and Maple Avenue Central parking lots. You must print a receipt from the machine and display it on your vehicle dashboard to be eligible for free two-hour parking.
