Downtown Parking Update
The City has completed the 90-minute parking trial which was held over the summer, and feedback from residents and businesses throughout the Cowichan Valley was received.
The feedback was presented to the Parking Advisory Committee and their recommendations were sent to Council for consideration. Council approved the 90-minute free parking trial areas to be changed to 2-hour Customer free parking. All signs have been changed throughout the City, and our map has been updated. This model for parking management in and around the downtown core increases the range of options for all-day parking, while freeing up valuable downtown curbside parking for customers.
Thank you to the Parking Advisory Committee, and to everyone who took the time to provide feedback.
More information on parking is available on our designated parking web page.
