MEMORIES ARE SHORT, but during the upcoming debate over the performing arts centre, it is important to remember back to 2015.
The PAC proposal of 2015 was trying to solve two problems on one space – a noble idea, but one that ultimately confused the issue in the minds of some.
This time around, instead of a 355-stall parkade meant to alleviate much of the parking shortage in downtown Kamloops, we have a 70-stall garage meant mostly for staff and performance crews.
It’s not intended to open up parking for the masses.
