Following an online public survey, Metro Vancouver will be working with the City of Delta on a proposed pay-to-reserve parking program at Boundary Bay Regional Park in 2022.

The results are clear: no pay parking within the City of Delta.

That’s according to a small sample size of Optimist readers who answered our latest community poll on our website.

The Optimist polled 433 readers asking the questions: Do you think Metro Vancouver should introduce pay parking for Centennial Beach?

The poll ran from Sept. 1 to Sept. 8. Of the 433 votes, we can determine that 214 are from within the community. The full results are as follows:

NO, there should be no pay parking within the City of Delta 77.60% total, 81.78 % local

YES, the money goes back into the park anyways 12.01% total, 9.35% local

YES, but only for reserved spots 10.39% total, 8.88 % local.

The Optimist runs multiple community polls on its website every week.
