KAWARTHA LAKES: City of Kawartha Lakes council is looking into what actions have been taken, on the downtown parking strategy, in the Lindsay downtown core.

At a meeting on Tuesday, October 24th, during discussions about the Committee of the Whole meeting which was held earlier this month, Ward 7 Councillor, Charlie McDonald made a motion for an update report, to come back to council by the first quarter of 2024, on the downtown parking strategy.

This motion follows a presentation made by Wesley Found, Chair of the Lindsay Downtown Business Improvement Association (BIA), on Tuesday, October 10th, where he was seeking answers on what steps have been taken since the parking strategy was adopted by council.

“To the best of my knowledge, no parking spots [have been added] or anything has been done with this study yet; and there [have] been a lot of changes. The growth strategy has changed, and [with regard to] parking spaces, we need more of them. No signs yet. There’s a lot of things on this report which really haven’t been addressed yet, and I just thought it was time to bring it forward,” Councillor McDonald explained, regarding the motion.

There was no discussion on the motion beyond that explanation, and the motion was approved.
