City council preview: Downtown association wants parking solution
A report urging the city to look at “all options” to increase parking stock in the downtown core is headed to council on Tuesday, June 26.
Gay Pooler, general manager of the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association, will present a raft of suggestions, ranging from increased parking-meter fees to buying existing, unused stalls in the area.
The association hopes to see the city begin an expression-of-interest process to find a suitable spot to build a new parkade and identify existing stalls not being used. It also wants the city to conduct an inventory of existing parking downtown and establish a parking-management authority that could either set or weigh in on rates for public parking and fees on private lots.
