The downtown core badly needs something, and a parking lot isn’t exactly visionary on the part of those in City Hall
LET ME MAKE SURE I understand. After years of deliberation, the best our City planners can come up with for the old Kamloops Daily News building is to tear it down and put up a parking lot?
It’s hardly paradise as it sits now, so my thoughts of Joni Mitchell really don’t apply, but I am totally floored that we are going to solve the problems of the downtown core by not only putting up a parking lot, but a surface parking lot that does little to address the overall problem.
