North Huron Parking Bylaw Called Into Question


North Huron council heard from the general manager from Blyth Festival, Rachel King in regards to the parking limit bylaw in effect across the area.

King mentioned the 2 hour limit can cause issues when it comes to festival goers, pointing to how Stratford increased their limit to 4 hours and the positive impact its had on the business community.

King says those who attend Blyth Festival who would be limited to just 2 hours would not have the proper time to explore downtown and shop local.

Council says despite the 2 hour limit, there is no true enforcement, basing it solely on a compliant driven process.

Staff will continue to work with the public as well as Blyth Festival and the Wingham BIA to continue progress regarding the bylaw.
