City moving forward on more parking stalls
While most of the parking suggestions from the Kamloops Central Business Association still need to be debated and voted on by city council, one item from the group’s report is moving ahead a little faster.
In August, the city put out an expression of interest (EOI) request for proposals that could increase the number of parking stalls downtown, either on a short- or long-term basis.
The EOI process closed on Sept. 21 and city CAO David Trawin said the city has a shortlist of proposals it’s looking at and is meeting with its legal counsel to figure out whether it needs to start a more formal bidding process.
Trawin said 10 sites are being considered from the EOI process, but confidentiality agreements forbid him from saying more about where they are.
