No parking from Washington to St. Paul in Rossland

There will be no parking from St. Paul to Washington starting tomorrow in Rossland.

This is the third installment of a weekly update column courtesy of Coun. Jody Blomme, a member of the city’s Columbia Task Force.

Starting Thursday, there will be no parking on either side of Columbia from St Paul to Washington.

The sewer main will be run to Washington, then water will be installed from Washington back to St Paul and, next, storm pipes will be run back to Washington. This process will take approximately three weeks.

Parking has been established on the private property at the corner of Spokane and Columbia. The new lot behind Rossland Hardware will have painted parking stalls by the end of this week.

We have also come to an agreement with the property owner of the land behind the Post Office and will be digging to see how much can be used for parking.

The section of Queen north of Columbia, up the hill, is now available for angle parking and lines will be painted in the coming few days. The result of these additions will be at least the equivalent to lost parking on Columbia, so please continue to support your downtown stores and services.

Every effort is being made to allow for parking in front of individual businesses. It cannot be stressed enough that Columbia Ave is a work site as well as a highway. Safety has to prioritize higher than parking.

St. Paul intersection should be back to operation by this mid-week and traffic will again be able to flow up St. Paul and East on Columbia.

Please call 250 512 1641 with all your technical questions.  Please contact the Communications task force at columbiaproject@rossland.ca with any concerns, complaints or suggestions.  We are working hard to address issues as soon as they come to our attention.
