Sidney awards its downtown parking study contract to Boulevard

Council News from the Town of Sidney, Oct. 13, 2015.

• Boulevard Transportation has been awarded a contract to conduct a parking study in downtown Sidney. That contract will be expanded, however, after council decided to increase its scope to include nearby residential areas. Coun. Mervyn Lougher-Goodey said it would be helpful if the study were to address downtown adjacent residential parking issues — as well as the parking issues on Frost Avenue on the west side of Sidney

 

• Town staff have been directed by council to seek a consultant to create a vision for the future of Beacon Wharf. The effort would include a community consultation process.

 

• The next downtown banner program, designed to spruce up Beacon Avenue, will be taken on by the Sidney Business Improvement Area Society.

 

• The 2015 Sidney Sparkles Parade and Sailpast will take place Sunday, Dec. 6.

Council approved plans by the Peninsula Celebrations Society to hold the annual event. It was moved from mid-November to early December to avoid conflicts with other area events.
