The Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association (KCBIA) is dedicated to a vibrant and livable Downtown that is the focal point of Kamloops. The organization provides value to members through advocacy, beautification, promotion, development and preservation of Downtown Kamloops.
The KCBIA is requesting that the City postpone the January 1, 2018 $0.25 per hour parking fee increase.
When this increase was put into the Bylaw in 2013, there were expected timelines and outcomes that have not been realized yet. The meter installation saw some delays so at our request the first slated increase was deferred for one year and we appreciated Councils’ cooperation.
Considering the lack of newly created long term public parking, receiving timely and relevant information on our current downtown parking situation and the negative public perception regarding parking Downtown, the KCBIA is requesting that City Council defer the slated January 1, 2018 increase for one year, until a study has been completed, or creation of long term parking.
