Rules for Parking Lot Striping
Posted by: @jonfkleingmail‑com
I live in a 12 unit condo building. We are going to have the striping (i.e. lines) for the parking stalls re‑painted in our parking lot.
There is one large parking stall that is much wider than the others. This stall is not marked for handicapped use and I’m pretty certain our building wouldn’t be considered handicap accessible anyway as it doesn’t have any ramps or an elevator. The stalls are all assigned, not titled, and none of them are shown on the condominium plan either.
I would like a three foot width of this large stall to be marked off as a walkway. However, I’m not sure if there are any laws that would prevent this from being done. Does anybody know? Are there any laws in Alberta that govern parking stalls for condominiums in Alberta?
Response by MarkH:
Generally, yes, there are standards for parking areas. In Calgary, the Land Use Bylaw (Zoning Bylaw) sets minimum standards for width and depth, and also the minimum number of stalls required. In the case of a condominium, it may have been authorised by a Development Permit, in which case the standards may vary from the standards in the land Use Bylaw. Call your friendly planning technician at (403) 268‑5311, AFTER you have gathered as much information as you can about your property. The Condominium Plan and civic address would be minimum requirements. If you have a Development permit number, that will help.
It seems you have already checked the condominium plan; have you checked your bylaws?
All the best with your quest.
