District of North Vancouver council is expected to amend the street and traffic bylaw to enable pass exemption program for DNV residents.
The meeting will be held today.
DNV residents will be eligible to purchase an annual $10 DNV Resident Pay Parking (DRP) Pass, which will exempt them from the Lynn Canyon Pay Parking Pilot hourly fees.
In order to enable the collection of fees, amendments to DNV Street and Traffic Bylaw, Fees and Charges Bylaw, and Bylaw Notice Enforcement Bylaw are required.
DNV is expected to start issuing the pass next month, if council amends the bylaw.
The two-year pay pilot project at Lynn Canyon and Lynn Headwater parks begins on March 1 this year.
Those who do buy the pass will need to display it in vehicles.
Vehicles displaying a disability card issued by the Social Planning and Research Council of BC (SPARC) will also be exempt from payment at the lot.
The rate for non-residents would be $3 per hour, for a maximum of three hours.
The amendments to the bylaw will also enable Resident Exempt (RE) Zone, which means an area designated as being an ‘exempt zone’.
Permits will only be issued to and may only be used by residents who live in homes that will be designated by DNV as an exemption zone.
