Sidney puts out call for surplus parking spaces

The Town has started talking to people about opening up their spaces to employees looking for downtown parking.

Parking in Sidney is still top of mind for the municipality and this month, they are reaching out to owners of private parking lots to consider adding their spaces to the parking pool.

Chief Administrative Officer Randy Humble said the Town has started talking to people about opening up their spaces to employees looking for downtown parking. Called Sidney ParkLink, Humble said the idea is to find new spaces for workers and free up existing ones for customers and visitors. Humble added this will look at local businesses, strata organizations and others that own their own lots or stalls, tapping into surplus parking spaces.

The Town is seeking interested people, willing to rent out their parking stalls to sign up online at sidney.ca. The website will be updated with a map, showing where the spots are available.

Humble added he doesn’t expect residents close to the downtown core to open up their yards for extra parking as a result of this initiative, as the Town has bylaws against that.
