Upcoming City of London reports

Two new reports about the downtown will be discussed at upcoming committee meetings.


Dundas Place Pilot

  • A report to Civic Works Committee outlines recommendations for a pilot that would make changes to Dundas Place to provide safe connections for all modes during this year’s construction in the core, and temporarily limit motor vehicle traffic to one-way eastbound while maintaining parking and loading on both sides. This committee meets on March 2.

Parking on Dundas Place

  • The same report to Civic Works Committee also seeks a bylaw amendment that would change parking rules, switching from two-hour paid parking to one-hour free parking. This committee meets on March 2.

The City will continue to provide updates as decisions are made by Council with respect to these reports.
