North Battleford city council has officially adopted the Parking Study as presented.
That was the study conducted by Crosby Hanna & Associates and presented to Planning Committee on Sept. 18.
The study included a number of key recommendations, including such things as moving towards tiered time limits with some parking spots extended to three hours, more signage and education, sensitivity to downtown revitalization efforts when implementing user-pay parking downtown, more courier parking and consistent enforcement as well as continuing to not allow vacant sites to be used as parking lots.
There was little discussion of the parking study Tuesday night as that had been done at length at planning committee previously. The vote to adopt carried unanimously. According to a memo from City Planner Ryan Mackrell, next steps include a comprehensive communications plan on parking as well as using recommendations made in the report.
