Paid parking could reduce throngs at Centennial Beach


Re: Heating up at beach, Murphy’s Law, July 30

After reading your column about the continuing parking problem at our very popular Centennial Beach, I wondered if anyone had thought about charging for parking? I’m thinking in particular about White Rock Beach where paid parking has been in effect for a very long time.

Charging for parking could possibly reduce the volume of cars and eliminate some of the headaches that are being experienced by local residents. The revenue created could go towards improvements along the beach.

With the outdoors being recommended by health officials, our beaches and outdoor areas are going to be in greater demand for the foreseeable future.
