Mayor Darryl Walker
“The City of White Rock is taking its direction from the Provincial Health Officer when it comes to physical distancing, and we will continue to make the health and safety of the people of White Rock a priority. The parking changes approved by Council balance community needs with the need to ensure we work together to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Council heard from businesses that 15 minutes is not enough time for takeout and other business on both the East and West Beaches. We are extending that to 30 minutes. Council heard from residents that they want a chance to park at the West Beach and enjoy their ongoing connection with our Waterfront. We are also making that change, providing four-hour parking for residents with decals.”
