2020 Parking Strategy recommended the implementation of parking restrictions along affected streets to manage downtown parking demand spillover into residential neighbourhoods. Based on research, a distance of approximately 500 meters measured from the municipal parking system boundary is considered appropriate for defining the area in which these restrictions should be applied. Applying these restrictions in this area will dissuade most drivers looking for free long-term parking in these residential areas.
The 2020 Parking Strategy outlines how parking will evolve as Barrie continues to transform.
As part of this strategy, the City is altering the parking pricing structure to better meet supply and demand by prioritizing on-street parking options for customers. Pass prices increased in January 2021, and hourly/daily rates increased on October 4, 2021 as follows:
Currently, the Parking Reserve is a user-funded program (not supported by property taxes). This model is most fair because it does not charge taxpayers who do not use the parking system (i.e. those that do not drive or do not own vehicle).
Parking rate increases are necessary to get the Parking Reserve to a sustainable position by 2031. To reach a sustainable position sooner, more drastic rate increases would be necessary, and this is not desirable due to the impact on businesses.
The last rate increase was in 2014, therefore the 2021 rate increase accounts for the inflation rate.

Parking lots should only be redeveloped in strategic situations where the project will act as a catalyst for growth in the downtown because demand is projected to exceed effective supply in the year 2041.
Maintaining municipal parking supply in central locations such as the Collier Street Parkade is essential to avoid future parking issues. The 'Parking Equilibrium Policy' was included in the draft of the
new Official Plan to secure the ability to negotiate the replacement of municipal parking during redevelopment.
Parking rates in Barrie are moderate when compared to similar municipalities such as Burlington, Kingston and Oshawa.
