Parking fee misses mark

Editor:

Re: Leaders hopeful over parking, Oct. 4

At $175 for a non-resident parking permit, White Rock council again tells the 100,000-plus residents of South Surrey that they and their business are not wanted at Marine Drive businesses.

Clearly, no professional marketing expertise played a role in shaping the current offer. Yes, there is a season and a price point at which White Rock city parking revenues will increase – as will business revenues – but $175 misses it by a mile.

That’s OK. We have Cactus Club, White Spot, Milestones, Roadhouse, Belles, Sawbucks, Tim Hortons, etc.

Editor’s note: Next month, White Rock’s pilot off-season permit allows four-hour parking until April 30.
