Visitors parking at White Rock’s waterfront can now park for free during the weekdays until the end of January.
There is no charge to park anytime from Monday to Friday for the next 3 months. And if you forget and try to pay, a message on the parking meters will pop up onto the screen:
“Enjoy our City By the Sea! 🙂 Have a Great Day! :)”.
The White Rock council approved the initiative back in July, and also agreed to new parking rates for ‘high-demand’ and ‘value rate’ zones, which are $3.75 and $3.25 per hour.
After the decision was set in stone, the city manager estimated that the new rates would lead to a budget shortfall of approximately over $400,000.
