CitCo Looks to Expand Parking Meter Project

The Belize City Council is looking to expand the Parking Meter Pilot project. The project was launched in April last year and meters were placed along Newtown Barracks and Albert Street in Belize City. The Belize City Council launched this project as a way to ensure that there are equitable parking spaces downtown and reduce instances of traffic jams. Almost a year later, Mayor Bernard Wagner, says the meter project has been successful and they are now looking to expand it to other parts of the city.

Bernard Wagner, Mayor of Belize City: “The pilot project worked pretty well for us in respect to the parking meters on Albert Street. If you would have visited the downtown area during the Christmas season so many of our residents in the city had the opportunity to participate and take that space which is a city space and use it in an equitable fashion so we are very very pleased with the pilot project and we do have plans to really expand it. Of course not without first consultation. We understand that that area might be a bit, it might have to tweak a bit to facilitate business in that area but again we go by our data that we have collected and there is no way that reduction in business has anything to do with the parking meter.”
