Summerland’s downtown area will have more spaces for parking as the municipality will widen two streets to accommodate more vehicles.
Municipal planner Ian McIntosh said a portion of Wharton Street and a portion of Kelly Avenue will both be widened.
On Kelly Avenue, the widening will be done across from Memorial Park.
The extra width will also provide additional space for the weekly farmers’ market.
An expanded sidewalk area will also be added.
On Wharton Street, the road will be widened to allow for angle parking on the portion of the street in front of the proposed development.
On the opposite side of the street, parking will be added, but it is not yet known whether this will be angle parking or parallel parking.
