Kinsmen Park Parking Strategy and Transportation Study
Kinsmen Park is more than just a destination; its pathways provide important active transportation connections between major employment areas such as City Hospital, University of Saskatchewan and the downtown. The goal of the transportation study is to assess the movement of people driving motor vehicles, riding bicycles, and walking within and around the study area. The goals of the parking strategy are to quantify the existing and the projected supply and demand for parking, and to provide a strategy to mitigate parking needs.
The Kinsmen Park Parking Strategy and Transportation Study supports the movement of people of all ages and levels of mobility in Kinsmen Park and its surrounding area.
The Kinsmen Park Parking Strategy and Transportation Study has provided the following details: background, initial issues and concerns and identified 27 opportunities for improvements to parking and traffic demand management, active transportation and traffic operations. These 27 opportunities have been broken down into short, medium and long term horizons based on the data that has been shared and the likely timeframe to complete. Please view the display boards from the November 2019 Open House for more detailed information on these identified opportunities for improvements.
Please note that not all items will be completed, and some opportunities would be dependent on other opportunities being completed in a sequential order. Detailed cost estimates along with cost-benefit analysis will need to be completed in order for any of these 27 opportunities to be budgeted, approved and completed.
The next step for this project is to finalize the report and submit to City Council as information. This is targeted for the first quarter in 2020.
