Parking at a School: Don’t Park Where You Shouldn’t

There is street parking by parents at our local schools in both no stopping zones and no parking zones. This illegal street parking is worst at drop-off and pick-up, the very times when there are many students walking about. These zones prohibit stopping and parking for the safety of the students. Please park responsibly at our schools by obeying the parking zoning.

NEO-RA has requested that the Town of Oakville monitor and enforce parking in front of Joshua Creek PS and St. Marguerite D’Youville CS. We support the Town enforcing its parking zonings. The Town is experience parking problems at other schools besides ours.

Our members are mostly parents. We appreciate the difficulties that inadequate parking facilities impose on us. Please speak up and let your school and school board know about inadequate parking facilities (there are links at bottom of this page). Try to find workarounds and co-operate with the efforts of your school councils.

At Joshua Creek PS, the HDSB has allowed its construction activity to reduce onsite parking spaces. We are requesting that these reductions be eliminated in whole or in part as soon as possible to make use of the onsite parking.

We are also requesting that the HDSB provide a drop-off area for Falgarwood PS.

Do you think Oakville’s Ward boundaries should change for 2010 elections or after?
