Lower Parking Rates in Downtown Whitby

This petition had 217 supporters

Parking rates in downtown Whitby have doubled overnight both in the Green P parking lots and on the street parking. This is making parking unaffordable for those who work in downtown Whitby and also the customers who support the local businesses.

We are greatly concerned about the impact that these rates will have on local businesses that are already struggling with inflated rent in the downtown area. Over the past 30 years, we have seen businesses come and go very frequently. A big reason for this is because parking is not very accessible. We would think that trying to encourage people to shop local and to support local businesses would be more of a priority for the town. Lower parking rates or a daily flat rate will encourage more visitors to downtown Whitby.

We are very excited to see the upcoming growth of downtown Whitby. With Brock Street Brewery and the new condos that will be coming across the street from us, what does that mean for parking? Will there be another Green P added? A parking garage? Underground parking? We need some options for not only our clients, but our staff members.
