White Rock Parking is a Hot Topic.
Since I don’t drive, the paid parking doesn’t have an impact on me. It’s a hot topic that’s affecting the majority of White Rock/South Surrey residents. Everyone seems to have an opinion on it.
Reasons Why Free Parking is Important
If White Rock were to have free parking again, they would have way more visitors at the promenade. We all know that the beach as been lacking in visitation ever since the pier broke. Personally, I think that WR should do anything they can to get more traction towards the beach. In turn, a lot of local businesses have been suffering and gone out of out of business.
To Sum It Up
As a local, born and raised in South Surrey its almost embarrassing to have the pier/promenade in its current state. Of course, we can’t avoid natural disasters, but we need to fix things as quickly as possible. I’m pleased to see the recent news of the contract to fix the pier and hope to see construction completed by the end of summer. Until then, at the very least, give us free parking.
Why would people pay to see a broken pier and abandoned businesses?
