The City’s new parking lot on the former Kamloops Daily News site now has fewer stalls available to shoppers and more available to pass holders, and every one of the reserved spots is spoken for.

A media release from the City today (Jan. 15, 2018) says the lot is now at full capacity for monthly pass holders and that the number of reserved stalls has been increased from 90 to 107.

The additional 17 stalls were quickly reserved by people on the waiting list, says the release. The remaining stalls in the lot are available to hourly and daily customers at a rate of $.75 per hour or $6 per day.

Anyone wanting to get on the waiting list for reserved parking in the lot can call Parking Control at 250-828-3407 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

    I’m guessing that these stalls are primarily permitted to downtown employees who formerly parked at the Heritage House parking lot, or the one by the Community Garden at Riverside Park? Would that be a fair guess?

  2. I would hope this has been thoroughly studied and the press release fully vetted by the new “spin doctor” hired by the city. As far as I can tell…is this a reason to vent or should we just let it pass?

  3. How many non-permitted stalls are available in the lot for shoppers?

      The news release didn’t say – I’ll have to check with the City. Anyone else know?

      Have confirmed with City that there are 181 stalls total, 107 of which are monthly permits. That number may be reviewed if there’s further demand from downtown employees for permit parking.
