The parking crunch is soon to be eased around the Collicutt Centre.

Crews will start working on the $564,000 parking lot expansion on Monday.

The new east side lot will add 99 new parking spaces, including two new and two relocated accessibility stalls and three new parent stalls.

This will bring the total number of parking spaces to 465.

Denis Delemont, Collicutt Centre supervisor, said more parking spaces at peak times has been identified as a need over the years.

“We’re delighted to meet that need and directly serve our customers with a development that not only provides more parking spaces but also improves safety and accessibility at the facility,” he said.

The new parking lot will open at the north and south ends, improving flow at the facility.

Motorists will be able to drive right around the facility and access it from the east as well as from the west side off 30th Avenue.

Some trees and shrubs at the site will need to be moved to accommodate the new parking lot. The adjacent sports field will be moved slightly to the east and rested for the summer in preparation for fall activity.

“It was important to us to be good neighbours,” says Delemont. “We planned the start date so nearby sports field users could get the most out of the field before it’s rested. Minimal disruption was also considered for the two high schools located next door.”
