Temporary parking relief approved

In preparation for traffic disruptions associated with work on Broadway Street this summer, Yorkton Council has approved some additional free parking.

“Phase II of the Broadway Street repaving project is scheduled to commence this summer. Phase I of the project was successfully completed over the summer of 2018. With most road construction, there are traffic accommodation plans made,” said Terrence Schneider, Bylaw & Safety Supervisor with the City at the regular meeting of Council Monday.

“In an effort to limit disruption to local businesses and property owners, a simple solution can be offered up to relieve some of the restrictions to accesses.”

In terms of parking Schneider noted, “The City of Yorkton owns and operates a permit parking lot in the immediate area as noted. Use of this parking lot by business patrons at no charge would assist in alleviating the restrictions to accesses for the businesses and property owners in the area during Stage 1 of the construction.”

Council was unanimous in its decision to waive parking fees at the City owned parking lot located at 15 Myrtle Avenue, for the duration of construction of Broadway Street Repaving Phase II – Stage 1, in order to reduce disruption of access to businesses and property in the area.
