Re: Paid parking to come into effect at three popular West Vancouver parks
Letter: West Van taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay to park in parks

Dear Editor,

I agree with the writer who says West Vancouver residents should not have to pay for parking in our own parks on an hourly basis, but I am not against having an annual parking pass displayed on my car.

$20 for a pass that is renewed each year, perhaps when we pay our taxes, is not too expensive to give us flexibility and access year long. Plus, it will help maintain cleanliness and accessibility.

Those who come to visit will pay the hourly rate, as we do when we cross the bridge to visit other areas of the lower mainland.

Jeri Krogseth,
West Vancouver
