Oakville introduces new parking app with HonkMobile

Thursday, July 6, 2017 – for immediate release

Oakville introduces new parking app with HonkMobile

Skip the line! Park and pay with your phone

The Town of Oakville has partnered with HonkMobile to offer a new way to pay for parking at municipal parking lots in Downtown Oakville and Kerr Village. In addition to the existing Pay by Plate machines, visitors can now pay for parking from their smartphone using the Honk app.

“We’re always looking for new ways to use technology to enhance town services,” said Mayor Rob Burton. “With the Honk app, there is no waiting at the pay stations. It’s easy as park, search, pay and go, making it easier to shop, visit and enjoy all that Downtown and Kerr Village has to offer.”

Honk also notifies users when their time is about to expire and allows them to buy additional time right from their smartphone, eliminating the need to rush back to a parking machine and helping to avoid tickets.

Simply download the free app from honkmobile.com, the App Store or Google Play and set up your account. When you’re ready to park, choose your zone and enter the parking time needed. Information is also posted on each parking lot’s pay-by-plate machines, if you need help.

“Honk is revolutionizing parking across North America and we are thrilled to bring our service to Oakville,” says Honk Founder and CEO Michael Back. “It’s really a win-win for the town and its’ motorists. As mobile adoption increases, there is less need for parking equipment and meters and their associated maintenance costs. The ease and convenience of the app eliminates the need to get out of the car to pay for parking.”

Look for the signs at all municipal parking lots that use Honk! On-street mobile payment will be accepted in the coming weeks.

For more information, please visit our Municipal Parking Lots and Garages page.

About HonkMobile:

HonkMobile is North America’s leading provider of on-demand mobile payments for parking. Honk’s innovative cloud-based technology streamlines parking by allowing users to search, pay for, and top up parking from their mobile phone, tablet or any internet connected device.

Using a single account, motorists can pay for parking anywhere Honk is accepted across North America.

Council approves Fire Master Plan

Monday, November 21, 2016 – for immediate release

Council approves Fire Master Plan

On November 14, 2016, Council approved a Fire Master Plan that will ensure Oakville’s fire services will meet the future needs of the growing community. The plan will guide the delivery of fire protection and emergency services over the next ten and fifteen years.

“The safety of our community is of utmost importance,” said Mayor Rob Burton. “With this plan in place, residents can be assured that the Oakville Fire department will continue to provide an exceptional level of service as our community expands.”

The Fire Master Plan includes an assessment of all operations and divisions within the Oakville Fire department including fire stations and trucks, staffing, apparatus and equipment, fire prevention and public education programs, communications and emergency planning.

Included in the plan’s 43 recommendations is the addition of a new station (Station 8) near the intersection of Bronte Road and Pine Glen Road and the future relocation of Station 9 from its current location on Neyagawa Boulevard closer to the intersection of Burnhamthorpe Road and Sixth Line. These recommendations are aimed at addressing the growth of new neighbourhoods in North Oakville as well as increased development in existing areas of town.

The Fire Master Plan was developed based on stakeholder and public input, community needs as well as current research and best practice. It includes strategies and recommendations that are consistent with the master planning processes outlined by the Office of the Fire Marshal and the Emergency Management, Ontario (OFMEM).

“Our focus is reducing fires and safety risks by optimizing three lines of defense – public education and prevention, safety standards and enforcement and emergency response,” said Fire Chief, Brian Durdin. “It’s a proactive strategy that helps keep the community safe, and helps manage the cost of fire suppression services.”

New Ward 7 to be in place for 2018 municipal election

Thursday, November 17, 2016 – for immediate release

New Ward 7 to be in place for 2018 municipal election

Change reflects growing population of Oakville

On November 14, 2016, Town Council unanimously approved the addition of a new ward and new ward boundaries for Oakville to be in place for the 2018 municipal election. Council passed By-law 2016-109 to increase the town’s wards from six to seven, and By-law 2016-110 to increase the size of Council from its current composition of 13 members (12 councillors, plus Mayor) to 15 (14 councillors, plus Mayor). The additional seats for one local councillor and one local and regional councillor will represent Ward 7.

“Changing our ward system is needed to assure our residents have fair, effective representation at the town and region as Oakville’s population continues to grow,” Mayor Rob Burton said. “The work completed over the last several years through our review process has prepared us to move ahead and make these changes in time for the 2018 election.”

To accommodate the new Ward 7, which captures neighbourhoods north of Dundas Street, adjustments will be made to all existing ward boundaries except Ward 3. The new boundaries ensure that the town’s population is redistributed to create more balanced wards, and reflects the federal standard of 25 per cent as an acceptable percentage variation in population size among wards.

Halton Regional Council recently approved an additional seat for the Town of Oakville, and two for the Town of Milton. Approval of this increase to regional representation has met the “triple majority” criteria outlined in the Municipal Act, meaning that a majority of Regional Council plus a majority of the lower-tier councils (Oakville, Burlington, Halton Hills, and Milton) have passed a resolution in support of the changes.

Section 222(1) of the Municipal Act allows municipalities to establish ward boundaries and change existing ward boundaries. Residents who object to the new ward boundaries (By-law 2016-109) can make an appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board which must be filed with Oakville’s Town Clerk by December 29, 2016. Visit the Ward boundary page at oakville.ca for more details on the appeal process, plus background information on the town’s ward boundary review and new ward boundary map.

Questions and comments can be sent to the Clerk’s department at:
