The City of Prince George and Downtown Prince George have once again partnered to offer free parking downtown for the month of December.
Motorists can park at any parking meter downtown for free until Dec. 31, however any time limits still apply.
What’s new this year is Downtown Prince George will be posting decals on the meters to remind motorists to save their quarters.
“A problem we were running into was letting people know and they ended up plugging the meter anyway,” Downtown Prince George executive director Janet Morris-Reade said.
Spee Dee Your Office Experts designed removable decals which let motorists know they can park for free with “seasons greetings from Downtown Prince George and the City of Prince George,” Morris-Reade said.
City council approved the initiative again this year on Nov. 7.
Morris-Reade said the program removes one potential barrier shoppers may encounter during the holiday season.
“We’re trying to encourage people to come and shop downtown who might not otherwise because of the hassle of trying to find change for parking,” she said.
