Trail looks to end “unfriendly” business parking bylaw
Trail city council is looking into scrapping a bylaw that has been perceived as unfriendly to businesses.
This from mayor Mike Martin.
He is speaking to a long standing bylaw which charges businesses that are renovating several thousand dollars for off-street parking.
Martin says the fees have been waived in most of these cases so it has not been a hindrance.
But he feels abolishing this bylaw altogether would eliminate a perception by some that it is unfriendly to downtown businesses.
Martin adds the city is pleased to help and support business ventures in Trail’s downtown.
