The District of Coldstream is stepping away from the no parking zone proposal on Ormsby Road in front of Sovereign Park.

If the majority of the neighbourhood wants to push through with the no parking zone they will have to submit a petition signed by the property owners to council.

“We want the people to be informed about two things, that the no parking zone would include no parking for residents as well and that we are looking into increasing the size of the parking lots at Sovereign Park,” said Coldstream Mayor Jim Garlick.

Council is going through the parks planning process to find out if the parking lots can be expanded but Garlick believes that it’s a viable option to deal with the parking problem.
