|Amended IRR of Senior Citizen Parking Ordinance|
Mayor Herbert Butista signed last July 24, 2012 the Ammended Implementing Rules and Regulations of Ordinance No. SP-2081, S-2011 otherwise known as the "Senior Citizen Free Parking Ordinance of 2011." The original ordinance also know as "An Ordinance Exempting All Senior Citizens of Quezon City from Payment of Initial Rate for Parking Fees in Establishments, Malls, Hospitals, Parking areas, or Any Similar Places Charging the Same Situated Within the Territorial Jurisdiction of the City and Providing Penalties for Violations Thereof" was promulgated to establish the mechanism to maximize the benefits and welfare of Senior Citizens residing in Quezon City. It was also a means to encourage commercial and business establishments in Quezon City to include as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility the support for Senior Citizens in their leisure and mobility pursuits.
The amendment affected Rule III, Section 7 of the original IRR on the exclusion of establishments using automated ticket machines and automatic card dispensers provided that they allocate a minimum of fifteen free parking slots, per level and per building for Senior Citizens. These parking slots must also be located near, adjacent or visible from the point of entrance or ticket/card dispensing machine.
The designated Senior Citizen parking slots must also be provided with a 12" x 18" green with white text reflective signnage.
